We haven't reached any conclusion and it's really time to order them.

That's why I propose we produce 1000 Workstation ones. I will also
order 1000 for usage of Red Hat Czech which will help us get a better
unit price.

That should be it. I would not order any other kind. DVDs are media of
the past, we produce them for legacy reasons and will discontinue them
eventually, so I think the minimal approach is right and we should not
ship full variety of Fedora offerings on DVDs because it's not our
primary way to distribute Fedora any more. Let's stick with the default
offering and with minimal amounts and let's discontinue it in 1-2
