Yes, agreed, use Open Office Presenter.

So the next question is what svn repository do we use to store this
marketing material:
* 1 page project description, including 1 screen snapshot.
* power point slide
* maybe videos

I expect that we will create most of this marketing material every time we
put out a LiveDVD release, which could be an arguement of keeping in the
LiveDVD repository.

However, it may be more appropriate to move all the marketing material over
to an osgeo/marketing directory. I don't have strong opinions either way, so
long as we have a repository of marketing material somewhere.
