I believe that flag is controlled by the Axiom command:

Gee, that reminds me of our plans long ago to publish
hardcopies of these volumes on . I haven't
looked at these volumes lately. What would be your estimate
of how much work remains before we could submit something?
Do you think getting these published should have a higher/
lower priority than some of the other (more interesting?)

Since I now just about have the pamphlet support on MathAction
working the way I want and the new book volumes are in the
form of pamphlet files, I wonder if it would make it easier for
other to contribute if I were to put these up on MathAction?
This would allow direct editing through the web. If I did this,
because of their size, maybe it would be a good idea to split
the volumes out further to chapter sized documents and then
define a master document for printing?

It reminds me also that we had talked about making it possible
to order CDrom containing installable versions of Axiom, the
source code and documentation. I think this can be done on
lulu with a bit of effort. I know that it is quite easy to
sell CDs through where we currently have
the Axiom Foundation Store (Axiom Gear).

I wonder if there is anyone out there who would like to take
on the task to prepare such a CD? I could help but I don't
want to lead the effort.
