Well, I'd love to see the Trustees discuss what they would like to do
about the Gentoo Store.  Our current store is essentially unmaintained,
as I'm the only person who really does anything with it.  We never even
added the 2007.0 media because it *literally* cost me more money in
shipping the media for 2006.1 than we made from the sales of the media.
It is also a fairly time-consuming process, as you have to fill out a
form for each CD, burn a physical CD, and ship it to them.  Also,
CafePress doesn't sell data DVD, which makes it much less useful, since
the LiveDVD is where the best Gentoo support is at.  We really need to
find another store or come up with a better solution.  The ideal
solution would be for us to create our own store front, then use the
CafePress API (and anyone else) to process the orders through.  This
way, we could easily support different items from different vendors and
not be limited to the offerings of a single vendor.

I will not be able to be in attendance for the meeting, so if you guys
need any further information from me, you'll likely want to get it from
me before the meeting.
