I assume if we update the repository, and try a compile, these packages 
should work?

Do we know when packages are expected to be migrated to UbuntuGIS?

Yes, I agree. One of our early tasks for 4.0 is to push for all projects 
to use the same Java version. (Also the same Tomcat version too)

It would be a worthy task if we could identify where any low hanging 
fruit is. Are there any big datasets being pulled into demos or similar.
Another early admin task to work on.

Yes, Lets pick one fairly universal dataset then stick to it. I'm in 
favour of NaturalEarth.

Alex, it would be very valuable if you could run through the build 
process, then update our project list [1] with what works and what does 
not. Then I can start chasing projects and pointing them at an error log 
and say "Can you please get this working".

Of note, I've been working on refining the documentation requirements 
for the next LiveDVD release. More on that in a week or so when I've 
finished. http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Marketing_Pipeline
