Trevor, Jackie,
We have exceeded the space available on a DVD to store all OSGeo-Live 
Linux, Windows and Mac applications.
As a consequence, in the last OSGeo-Live release a few weeks back, 
OSGeo-Live 4.5, at the last minute we were forced to remove a number of 
Windows installers, and unfortunately, we had to remove the MapGuide 
Windows installer due to its size. (The linux based version of MapGuide 
is still installed).

With the next FOSS4G 2011 release in Sept 2011, we expect to have a few 
new applications added, and we will need to make hard decisions about 
keeping our image size in check.
As MapGuide is one of the biggest applications installed, we hope that 
you can work with us to see if there is a way to bring MapGuide's 
install size down.
