I agree completely with Venka. Our strength up to now has to be inclusive,  considering  all excellent and community based free and open source projects. Let us continue in this way!!!
Happy sunday!

I think the OSGeo-Live project that you are leading can be safely
(re)-named as
FOSS4G-Live as it has a wonderful array of software projects that are not
under the OSGeo umbrella as yet.
