There are GLUGs where people exchange CDs through online websites and mailing lists. But, not every city or village has a GLUG. So, this project helps in initiating a cds4grabs page in providing the contact info of people who are willing to share/lend/copy/exchange GNU/Linux CDs by utilizing the backbone communication services (telephones, mobile services, courier services) of their country.

Each country can have a database that will have a list of different states, and within each state there will be a list of cities. The cities will contain records on different areas/counties providing the following details:
