[Live-demo] Planing Roadmap in OSGeo Trac for Live Project

I'm open to moving OSGeo-Live Subversion and TRAC into their own instance.

We last visited this question a few years back, and have set up our 
current setup based upon Frank Warmerdam's recommendation. FrankW, do 
you wish to weigh in on this thread?

Re: coordinating translations. I'd still like to use our Google Docs 
spreadsheet. We have some magic formulas in these spreadsheets we are 
using to compare subversion version numbers to determine if a doc is 
translated or not, which would be hard to emulate in trac.

Re: using the issue tracker. We do use track, and I'm open to improving 
our use of it. Our current process includes tagging releases, as 
described here: http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Live_GIS_Disc#Issue_Tracker

Issue Tracker

Our issue tracker is hosted at OSGeo's Trac system, and you will need to 
create an OSGeo UserId before you can login and edit issues. To 
distinguish the LiveDVD project from other OSGeo projects, use the 
following conventions:

Component field
     Set to `LiveDVD`
     Version: Set to base release version: eg: 5.0, 5.5 (not 5.5rc1)
     Application: Set to application with issue (use lower case): eg:
