As I understand it, there's at least some.
There is also a practical problem with production. The vendor
using doesn't even produce pressed DVDs in quantities under 1000 and
burnt DVDs are pretty expensive (up to $1.5 per DVD). DVD production in
small quantities is expensive.
Optical drives are an increasing rarity in new computers. They'll be going
the way of the floppy soon enough. I think that for next year, we should
deemphasize DVDs overall, instead focusing on fliers and promotional
material. I know this is _also_ an extra cost, but I think it would be worth
printing these on demand per-event with event-specific URLs, so we can
better judge return rates.
If we move to USB sticks (rather than just ditching media altogether), I
think we should follow the suggestions from earlier threads and raise the
bar for getting one — perhaps even to the point of asking people to sign up
for a Fedora account (and promising no spam, of course) if they don't have
one, and visiting Badges to get the badge for that conference.
