Excellent.  Including the volontary contribution part.
It would be really nice to offer live DVDs.

Salut Marc
Why don't we start up a Canadian community to do this, among other things.
And I can do local promotion in the Montreal area, and you southern 
Ontario / Toronto ?
And maybe we can find someone out west ?
(Mailing DVDs would be less expensive locally.)

For the donation part, would we have to set up some sort of formal 
organization (here in Canada, maybe provincially) ?

Maybe we should contact some US Mandriva mirrors to see if someone would 
be interested in doing that there ?
