Ben and Foss4g workshop presenters,

Yes, one of our drivers for OSGeo-Live is for it to be used in workshops 
such as FOSS4G workshops.
So we would love to support any presenter who would like to make use of 
OSGeo-Live in their presentation.

Due to the level of quality and testing we apply to OSGeo-Live, we have 
quite a long build cycle, which you will need to factor in if using 

I've just set up the schedule for our 5.0 foss4g 2011 release here:

Key dates:
2 May 2011: Start release cycle
4 July 2011: Feature Freeze - all final versions of applications installed
1 August 2011: All applications installed and tested, and sent to User 
Acceptance Test
22 August 2011: We burn the final ISO and send to the printers
12 September 2011: FOSS4G

Anyone who wishes to add a new application to OSGeo-Live should contact 
us soon, and definitely by the start of our release cycle in May. The 
process for getting an application onto OSGeo-Live is explained here:
