OSGeo Marketing and OSGeo Board,

Us LiveDVD packagers are looking to rename our packaging project and the 
Disc that we distribute as "OSGeo-Live", accessable at http://live.osgeo.org

Before we lay claim to this name, I'd like to give the OSGeo Marketing 
Committee and OSGeo Board the opportunity to raise any concerns with our 
use of the "OSGeo" name, and if objections are strong enough, we can 
pick a different name.

So please speak up now if you have a concern, or objection.
Otherwise vote positively to: "Should the LiveDVD be renamed as 

+1 Cameron, LiveDVD group, Marketing committee member.

As background:
* The Live DVD packages up many of the OSGeo projects on a liveDVD, as 
well as other Open Source GeoSpatial applications.

* We will likely encourage projects to at least join OSGeo Labs, but 
this will likely not be enforced in the short term. So we will have 
packages on the disc which are not associated with OSGeo.

* Our focus to date has been on providing a DVD for conferences (most 
notably FOSS4G)

* In future there will likely be other focuses for the DVD, or 
derivitives of it, which focus on training material, documentation, 
specific project(s) distributions.
