Not sure who to ask but figured this list could provide some insight. I'd like to take the OSGeo-Live  and make it available on VM Depot  run by Microsoft Open Tech. VM Depot is really just a community catalog of VMs that could be easily spun up on Microsoft Azure. I would eventually like to do the same on Amazon but for now this work aligns with other efforts in my day job. It don't think there will be that much effort involved in doing this but I wanted to make sure that this wasn't already done by someone and that it was okay to essentially redistribute this work.
The intended purpose of this is to help make it easier for some NASA Earth Science people I work with to have a platform to explore these technologies. We would eventually extend on this VM with ways to interact with NASA services/examples but figured this was an easy way to get bootstrapped. The other motivation we have is to infuse FOSS4G technologies into our data systems so this seemed like an avenue to do such a thing.
A little background on me. I was lucky enough to be able to participate on the planning committee for this years FOSS4G NA but unfortunately sequestered and unable to attend. Currently, I'm helping lead some working groups within NASA that focus on Geospatial efforts so my motivation there is to help tie that community to this one. I've worked for NASA for quite some time but over the last 2 years have become passionate about the open source efforts in the geospatial community.
Essentially, I really want to make sure that I credit OSGeo and all the people that did the work but at the same time not infringe on their efforts in any way. Any pointers, thoughts, concerns, etc. would be greatly appreciated.
