I think postgresql 8.4+ and postgis 1.4+ are mature sw
 and we need to rewrite the script to upgrade both postgresql and postgis.

note : the last time i tried the scripts on ubuntu 9.10
i found  different packages that needs to be update.
i think that we need just "one time" to run each scripts manually "only the apt-get lines"
to see which packages are obsolete so we can update the right version number inside the install_scripts.

Alex asked for a different dvd build procedure, i think remastersys is good but maybe non optimal ... googling
i find a "really nice" tool  "pyfll"


unluky the only docs i find on pyfll usage is in german :


^^^ the last one shoul'd be a good way to follow.
is on the list a german translator :-) ?


Ubuntu is really good for linux beginner and not) i like it.
However (for who is intersted ) i'm rworking on a "edu-verson" for osgeo live disk.
the work to prepare it can go ahead in parallel with the foss4g-live preparation.
To prepare it i'm porting the install_scripts to run under sidux, 
i'll use the drive-space used by win/osx installer to have more space left for tutorial, data and sw.
(Sidux is a debian sid based distro, it use the debian-gis repository with up-to date sw-packages 
it's usage in a live-edu-disk is a way to say thanks to all the debian gis mantainers too)

what do you think about?
