In all the discussion at and around Vancouver I got lost as to whether
or not we (tug-pub) or TUG or the TeX Live group can sell or give away
copies of the TL4 CD-ROM to members or corporate members.

I'm doing a 1-day tutorial at XML'99 in Philly on LaTeX for SGML and
XML Users. I'd like to use (ie install and use) LaTeX from the TL4
CD-ROM for this, so I need multiple copies...and I'd like to let them
take it away afterwards. It's only 20 people max, and there's no
problem paying for them.

BTW while trying to make a backup copy of my TL4 I found that if you
copy all of it off onto hard disk, it appears to be impossible to burn
it back complete onto new CD-Rs, because the three files whose names
begin with a period won't copy -- at least not with the version of
Adaptec's Easy-CD that I have. Is this a bug in Easy-CD or a security
"feature"?  :-)
