Please note the following will apply to discussions of OS X 10.7 Lion:

Only discussions of either publicly released information from Apple or rumors will be allowed.
We will not allow discussions related to pre-release copies of Lion as it is covered by NDA for legitimate developer users.

If you have a legitimate copy of Lion, you should be using the provided resources that Apple has given you for support and troubleshooting and you should not be sharing information here that is covered by the NDA.

If you do so, you could risk being suspended or banned from Mac-Forums.

As There is no information on other options to purchase Lion as the Appstore, I'm wondering will there still be the old DVD option of purchase from the shop? And if there is the family pack available (for up to 5 Macs)?

No need for a family pack any more. The same install can be used on up to 5 Macs using the same iTunes account.

So its $29.99 in the US or 20.99 in the UK for up to 5 machines

No word yet on physical media. I doubt we'll see a retail pack.

At best I suspect you'll be able to create some kind of boot disc with a pre-loader (like the installer currently uses to access disk tools etc). From here you'll get an option to download and install or restore from backup/partition.
