While I love the idea of having a FOSS4G local dataset, I'm also weary 
that we do not want to set up work that needs to be repeated by us 
packagers or projects every year.
Eg: Quickstart documentation will require screen grabs based upon 
datasets used. There will likely be ~ 1 day per project to create a 
quickstart, close to 1 man month in total, which we don't want to ask 
for every year.

I'm happy to have a local dataset included, but suggest it is only used 
for applications which are not going to be reused the following year.
