That is the reason I asked for a quantitative assessment of the
impact. On hindsight, last year we tried to do a lot of things
(somewhat along the lines of being everything to everybody).
Personally, I don't think we actually had success on that.

To have a "normal" FAD, you'd need to have folks who spent the last
year working on something "Fedora". Transplanting external resources
makes for good show-n-tell, but most of the time it doesn't produce
anything significant.

I take it that NIT is an institution - it should be able to set up a
Fedora mirror and, allow local installs. I don't see the surging need
for DVDs.
