I replied to that message with some feedback about the process to
follow to make them happen.

We have an open trac ticket on this and I think I'll add you to it so
you can follow up there. I think our biggest concern more than cost is
that Fedora multi-touch features work really well on it.

I fixed up your trac ticket requests. The tablecloth should be inside
the event box and once you provide a shipping address in the ticket we
can get that shipped to you.

We'll ship the banners too, also waiting in the same ticket for a
shipping address.

We have shirts and can get them to you in time. It helps us a lot if
you can put rough numbers on swag requests. If you want 100 t-shirts
that will be a problem but 20 or 30 we can probably just send.
