We are organising an "OSGeo-Live Quickstart 48 hour hackathon", aimed 
squarely at bringing OSGeo-Live documentation quality up one notch, by 
putting the Quickstarts through the same comprehensive testing and 
review that we have provided for our Project Overviews. (Credit to Javi 
and the OSGeo-Live Spanish community for suggesting the initiative).

The Hackathon will kick off with a one hour IRC meeting with everyone, 
followed by a 48 hour round the clock hangout, with people dropping in 
where appropriate for their timezone and work/family schedules.
