The idea is interesting, but I want to know if something like this
could be useful. We have a new release each 6 month, and, generally
local contacts or other entities burn CDs/DVDs in bulk so the cost are
less that produce more time a small quantity of media. If I'm not
wrong re-spins are released after 3 months, this means, we will have
to cover each FY 4 releases (official and re-spins) and this means the
cost will be more.

BTW, if there are reasonable points, I think we can cosider it, maybe
a suggestion from a legal POV and/or a Board opinion could better help
having a decision. What I think is that, finally, we will have 4
releases, but 2 of them aren't releases but upgraded version.

If the arguments will be in favour of such initiative, stay sure
FAmSCo will directly support it, asking Board and, if there will be no
legal or other obstacles, we will work distributing resource to allow
this production.
