I agree with you, when you say that this is a huge umbrella. ;-)
On my time live, I've learned that the best way to solve a big problem is to divide it in smaller problems. (and solve them one by one)

So, define a name for the Script repository is, in my opinion, the best way to start clarifying how we will keep working on this huge project.

I've just arrived from one more inspiring OSGeo event, the Portuguese Local Chapter meeting:

In the middle of one brainstorm talks with some of these friends, an idea came up for a name.

All of you know about OSGEO4W, right?!

And what if we follow that example and call our script repository build (now for Live DVD / GISVM) : 

OSGEO4U = OSGEO for Ubuntu

It is a great name, independent and follow a line already defined.

What do you think of that?

I am so sorry that you couldn't come to Sydney.
I was looking for meet you there.

I don't have a problem coming up with a name for that process, but as far
as the overall project goes we should not limit or define ourselves by a
single build method.

The LiveDVD/Live-Demo is a meta-project intended to be a showcase for
OSGeo software. ie regardless of implementation, base OS, build method,
usage, sponsorship, conferences, etc.

Within that greater umbrella we have the opportunity to produce whatever
and as many products as we can find enough developers to create.

If there is any confusion it is best dealt with by improving the
documentation and communication. The primary table-of-contents page for
that is the Live_GIS_Disc wiki page.

"These are our goals, and this is how we achieve them."
