Interesting you should quote goals.html. Nowhere does it mention FTP

FTP installs are eating into CD sales; that directly conflicts with one
of the goals.
And while FTP site might be a gift to the project, I don't see why access to it,
=the= OpenBSD site, should be a =gift= to the downloader. Let them pay at least
a little for the download if someone sees a usable way to arrange it that way
(Pay Pal?). If someone else wants to donate the cost of traffic it away for
free, no problem but why should Theo do so?
Who expects him to give away the CD's for free?
