Hi Helena,
I pulled that page together so that anyone who wanted to help with  
packaging would have a place to start.  I have also been testing some  
scripts, locally, to monitor when project versions change -- with the  
end goal of updating that wiki to reflect the update.  As you can  
imagine it changes regularly and is already out of date.

But, other than the work Frank is doing on OSGeo for Windows, I don't  
know of much packaging work that is happening.  I have also heard  
that Ominiverdi, or Luca Casagrande at least, is working on a new  
LiveCD based on Ubuntu.  I think that counts as building a platform,  
but isn't specifically addressing any particular OSGeo effort.
