sponsorship to do another print run of the LiveDVD. We will hand them
out in a couple of weeks in four Australian cities during a Geospatial
Open Source workshop roadshow, and also a Geospatial conference.

In preparation for the print run, we at LISAsoft have been busy
polishing the existing DVD, improving usability and graphical
presentation (to give it a more professional look).

And a name for the project: "arramagong" which means "wombats run into
