Do you think that TOPS is ready for inclusion in OSGeo-Live yet? 

It certainly fills a gap in the Geospatial Open Source stack, and would 
be a good candidate.
My main query is whether you consider TOPS to be "an established project 
with very stable releases".
(We usually look for projects with a release number >= 1.0)
