We do track all the major purchases like hardware. We have been
working with infra on this for quite some time. Of course its rather
nice that Robin has joined the board. Since he is infra lead, that
makes it much easier.
In all honesty, I suspect that there are a few little items, like your
banner, that are floating around. Keeping track of the old stuff may
prove rather difficult. In any case, thanks for letting us know you
have it and being willing to ship it to Mike.
