I know Thomas, don't worry, I have nothing against you. :)
The fact is that when we started to create the association, the message
from RedHat was : create stuff locally and you will get reimbursed. But
nobody here wanted (and it was more than legitimate) to pay for $500
for DVDs without the assurance to be reimbursed totally. The
organisation is there to simplify all this stuff, and now it is there
it will simplify things a lot for us.
