At Nordic I had a longer talk with Chris Ternel about producing a
dvd. I think it has to be a dvd because of the big databases. At
first he was very sceptical. He thinks that there will be a lot of
pirate copies because we can't use a copy protection.

We agreed on giving it a try. I will make a list of stuff that
should be on the dvd:

1. windows self installer
2. Linux rpms
3. MacOS packages

4. The big bearoff databases
5. The hypergammmon databases

(6. Position databases ?!)
(7. Some matches ?!)

Perhaps also a hard copy of the manual (Oystein and I agreed that
fininishing the manual has high priority now). 

We didn't talk about any money, but I think it would be a good deal
to let him distribute the dvd's online and at tournaments either for 
small money or for free (as an extra giving for people who order a
certain amount at his bg shop), but of course he also has to pay all
