If you wish to burn Fedora Core 5 on CD or DVD for anyone who provides blank
media, you can certainly do that. If the school wishes to distribute Fedora
Core 5 for the cost of the media, they are welcome to do that for anyone, and
we would certainly consider that a good idea. If they are willing to make
the same offer to the general public and not just the students, they can be
added to the Local Vendors list.
