11.4 was released about 10 March and is current for eight months until about 
10 November.   It should not be a major issue for someone who became 
acquainted with 11.4 to upgrade to 11.5.a few months later - the upgrade 
process in openSUSE is reliable and fairly transparent.

As I understand it, the openSUSE project dispatch a minimum of 100 promotional 
DVD, for ecomomy of shipping.

I co-ordinate a linux beginners' group here in Canberra and openSUSE is our 
second most popular distro.  I would be prepared to have a few of the 
promotional DVD for that group and anticipate that a few members would 
participate in an Oz openSUSE group.
