Subject: [mapserver-dev] Testing Mapserver on the LiveDVD


This week we are testing our last release candidate for the OSGeo 
LiveDVD. This DVD contains ~ 35 of the best GeoSpatial Open Source 
packages, is handed out at GeoSpatial conferences like FOSS4G, and has 
started to be used in training workshops and the like.

I wonder whether someone familiar with Mapserver could volunteer to act 
as a point of contact between us LiveDVD packagers, and the mapserver 

I'm also after (maybe the same person, or maybe another) to write  down 
~ 10 test steps which would verify that mapserver is working on the 
LiveDVD. We plan to put out the final release this coming weekend.

Instructions for running the LiveDVD from a web browser are here:

Template for test steps are here:

and GeoNetwork Test Steps and results should go here:

Hopefully, this should only take 15 to 20 mins, and it ensures that we 
retain a high level of quality for the LiveDVD.
