We have started building this year's OSGeo-Live DVD 
<http://live.osgeo.org> which will be handed out to every delegate at 
FOSS4G 2010, as well as many other Geospatial events.

This year, OSGeo-Live will be even sexier, more useful and professional 
by including:

    * consistent Application Overviews
    * Application Quick Starts

    * A common world dataset <http://www.naturalearthdata.com/>
    * An overview of all applications on the LiveDVD in a presentation
      at FOSS4G 2010

We want to hear from:

    * Established GeoSpatial projects who wish to include their project
      in OSGeo-Live
    * Workshop leaders or trainers who wish to use OSGeo-Live. We'd like
      to know how we can help you.
    * Project representatives please:
          o Update application version in application spreadsheet
            then update your test script to ensure it installs in
            Xubuntu 10.04.
          o Comment on whether our draft templates for Project Overview
            and Quick Start
            fit your projects.


    * 25 July 2010: Documentation template ready for use
    * 5 July 2010: Feature freeze
    * 2 August 2010: Final delivery for User Acceptance Test
