We are starting to build the 5.5 OSGeo-Live <http://live.osgeo.org> DVD 
which will be released in March 2012, ready for the Spanish FOSS4G, 
FOSSGIS Germany, GISRUK in England and the MapWindow/FOSS4G Regional 
Netherlands Conference, among others. We would like to hear from anyone 
wishing to add new projects to OSGeo-Live, anyone wishing to extend or 
add extra translations, or anyone who has ideas on how we should shape 
the upcoming release.

    Which project version?

Could each installed project please update our status sheet to note the 
expected version to be installed on OSGeo-Live 5.5. Status sheet 

    Key Priorities for next release

Disk Space
    We have reached our DVD size limits, and need to be creative about
    saving space 

Package Updates
    Update and test latest stable software releases 

Quickstart Reviews
    We have Project Quickstarts, but most haven't gone through
    comprehensive review 

    With Quality being a key focus area for us, we need lots of help
    with testing. 

    Key Milestones

    07 Jan 2012 Feature Freeze 
    04 Feb 2012 User Acceptance Test (all Apps installed and working) 
    25 Feb 2012 Final ISO sent to printers 

... full schedule
