Hi Cameron,

I want to apologize for not answering your email until now.  For some
reason, it went to my junk mail folder.  Anyway, I have taken care of that
now.  Hopefully, that will not happen again.

So, what I can do for you is set up a membership in click2try that you and
your team can use to collaborate on VM development.  I can set up a template
application image that can be used to build new VMs.  Through the dashboard
interface you can make new copies of images, backup and restore images,
start and stop images and other functions.

I can set you up as the membership administrator.  That way you can define
new user ids for your developers.

Please let me know if this is what you are thinking of.  Also, please let me
know how you see the team collaborating on our platform.  What other
capabilities do you think you will need to have?

Subject: Engaging Click2Try in the next version of the LiveGIS distribution

Our FOSS4G conference is over, and our LiveGIS team are starting to plan 
for our next release (probably in March 2010).

Some of our pain points in the last release were:
* Click2Try were only brought in at the last minute, and hence we had a 
number of bugs in click2try which were being addressed under the 
pressure of a tight deadline.

* Because we were so focused on the development, and the FOSS4G 
conference, we only had limited time for marketing and engaging with the 
user community.

* Many of our packagers have limited bandwidth, and consequently are not 
in a position to download multiple iterations of a distribution themselves.

I wonder whether click2try would be interested in providing our team 
with a few online development servers which we can use to build our image.

What are your thoughts here?
