Relaed to this thread.  I'm thinking about adding GeoMoose as well.  But
I'm having a hard time gleening how much work it will be over the long
haul.  I don't want it to end up half done for example. 

Also, was wondering about things like USB bootable versions of things. 
I could include this in the distro for GeoMoose as well, but is that
sort of capability played up at all, should it be a separate DVD or
Chapter, also, I'm currently working on a Mobile version that likely
won't be done in time for inclusion in anything (yet) but I'll include
it here as another possible version . . .

So you are basicly saying that starting project that doesn't have a
community yet has no chance to be added to the dvd ?
Maybe there is a difference between the FOSS4G DVD and what you call the

I was thinking it was a special version regrouping applications
available at the foss ?
or am I wrong ? to I need to maintain it afterward ???

There is point making my own DVD, the objective is to show the project
exist, not for me
but for the community.

The project I would like to include is Puzzle-GIS :

It' a Java Desktop GIS build on Netbeans Platform and GeotoolKit.org.
the version I will propose is v0.7 which is not available for download
it will take ~80Mb and does not need install script.
