This messages is from the Debian events list. I think we could do the same - ask for donations for the DVDs/CDs.

However, imho, we should not sell CDs that have been sponsored by third-party people / companies. This would just be wrong, imho. What we have done in the past, though (e.g. LinuxTag), is to ask people for a donation when taking a CD (in that case). From my experience, people who do not really want a CD are usually "frightened away" by that. > I believe people will also additionally like this argument of ours.
