I've set up the schedule to ensure that OSGeo-Live is ready for FOSSGIS 
(and similar conferences at that time).

So yes, I'm fully anticipating OSGeo-Live 4.5 to be ready for FOSSGIS.

This would be excellent. I'm very excited by the prospect.
I'm assuming you will work out a way to cover the costs of printing.

It would be good to credit the many people involved in building 
OSGeo-Live. We can discuss details about how to effectively do that (and 
not become boring) at a later stage.

I'll also add that now would be a good time to mention any specific 
requirements you may have for OSGeo-Live, if you need them.

Also, you may wish to sponsor/influence/provide the artwork for the 
desktop background and DVD cover.
