we're looking for help testing OSGeo-Live 11.0 beta1 and translating 

In particular, we need help:

1. Testing. Run Quickstarts and verify they work. Join us on 
irc://freenode.net#osgeolive this weekend, 8 & 9 July 2017, for our 
testing sprint.

2. Check if any new features need to be added to Project Overviews [2]

3. Update review status in our spreadsheet [4]. (It really helps us know 
if an application has been reviewed, and by who).

4. Translate docs that have been updated. (Note, our spreadsheet [4] 
lists a number of retired projects which need updating in the 
overview.rst contents page and metrics.rst page.) You find the 
documentation at [2]. Read how to get the documentation fom github and 
how to make pull request [3].

OSGeo-Live is scheduled to be the default installation at FOSS4G 2017 
workshops. We strongly urge all workshop leaders to test OSGeo-Live now 
and provide feedback, while there is still time to tweak anything 
required for the workshop.
