As raised in the last few OSGeo Live weekly meetings, we are proposing 
that GPS-Drive should be retired and not included in the next OSGeo-Live 

This is based upon:
1. GPS Drive has outstanding issues resulting in it not being able to be 
installed: https://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/ticket/1601

2. We have not been able to connect with anyone from the GPS Drive 

3. From OpenHub metrics, it appears that GPS-Drive hasn't had anyone 
contributing to the project for a few years: 

If anyone has reason to suggest that GPS-Drive should stay (and is also 
prepared to help getting it working), then please speak up now.

That GPS-Drive be retired from OSGeo-Live.
