"Only" the spirit. A "written offer" [GPL 3b] is enough; someone
has to provide the cds if someone wants them. I doubt that we
would find someone for that (although TUG or DANTE would be
natural choices). And it's certainly a problem when we imagine
TeXlive distributed globally in places where it would be
difficult to get the other cd.
