[Live-demo] Please help keep MapGuide on LiveDVD 5.0

Hi Johan,

Absolutely!  Some of the changes required may not be appropriate for released branches.  Our main development branch "trunk" is always in development mode so we should be able to accept the changes there.  "Trunk" will be branched for the next release of FDO and MapGuide near the end of the year.

I suspect the changes required will be straightforward.  The C++ code for both projects should be ok.  I expect that the bulk of the changes will be made to the build process.  Hopefully FDO will just be minor fixups to the existing CMake build process.  Not sure about MapGuide.  We may want to switch to CMake to make distro libraries a little easier to handle.

I have a bit of spare time next week, and I may try to help out - but
I'm not guaranteeing anything. I'll first make sure that saga and
mapserver are up to date on the live dvd.
Perhaps we should set up a repository with all changes necessary to
build on ubuntu 11.04? I prefer git - but can sync that with others.

Apart from that: I first want to be sure that my changes will actually
be considered for inclusion in the later mapguide releases. I don't
want to spend my little spare time packaging this thing only for the
live dvd.
