Trying to hunt down the selection criteria you reference - so that link
gives me two links:
First Link - Live GIS Add Project
Priority for selecting OSGeoLive projects to package is:
> - OSGeo Projects
> - OSGeo Projects in incubation
> - Stable GeoSpatial Open Source Software being presented in workshops,
> tutorials, or presentations at FOSS4G
> - Other Stable GeoSpatial Open Source Software with established project
> communities and a wide user base
The second link Questions to answer when requesting to add an application
to OSGeo-Live <https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Live_GIS_Disc_Apply>
> - OSGeo-Live is targeted at applications that people can use rather
> than libraries. Does the application have a user interface (possibly a
> command line interface) that a user can interact with? (We do make an
> exception for Incubated OSGeo Libraries, and will include Project Overviews
> for these libraries, even if they don't have a user interface.)
> - We give preference to OSGeo Incubated Projects, or Projects which
> are presented at FOSS4G <http://foss4g.org/> conferences. If your
> project is involved in OSGeo Incubation, or has been selected to be
> presented at FOSS4G, then please mention it.
Is this what you have in mind Cameron?
