As far as I'm aware, all applications on OSGeo-Live use the Sun JRE and 
we have removed (or we should remove) OpenJDK in order to save space.

Rather than switching to OpenJDK, can you just note in the status 
spreadsheet that your application can run with OpenJDK. Once all 
applications can use OpenJDK, we can then move all applications across.

Sounds good.

Can you please first update your Overview to reference the 1.10 version, 
then set the status in our status spreadsheet to "4.5draft". We can then 
quickly review and let translators start translating.
