I'm sharing this conversation about including THREDDS on OSGeo-Live.
I'd be interested to hear thoughts on Ethan's comments about Docker.
The next step in including THREDDS to OSGeo-Live is to officially apply,
If you wish to join our next release then please send us an email in the

Warm regards, Cameron
