We already talked about this at Nordic Open this year. Ken Arnold
was distributing gnubg on ca. 7000 Gamesgrid CDs.

If gnubg will be distributed on cd there are a few questions:

- What about the money, where do we open an account?
- Who will organize burning the cds, printing the cover, label, etc?
- What else do we put on the cd (i.e. bigger databases)?
- Finally: Will there be a demand on the cds in times of adsl?
