I've recently started using some cool open source tools which I belive
would fit very well on the live dvd:

Geoext: well not really missing since  mapfish, geoexplorer, geonode,
geonetwork and perhaps others are using it, but it would perhaps be
nice to have an own overview and quickstart. It is a javascript
library so packaging is not really an issue.

It is a library so not an end-user application - not sure if that woutld fit.

Hale: Perhaps less well known, but definitely of interest in Europe.
Hale is a tool for defining and evaluating conceptual schema mappings.
It is one of the only tools I know which will create data in complex
gml schemas, such as the ones that are part of INSPIRE.It is a java
project and runs on ubuntu, but we should check whether it also works
well with openjdk (I've not tested that).


Perhaps not on this live dvd, but for the next release I think we
should also add more nodejs based libraries/programs such as topojson.
For now it may be a lot of work to backport all dependencies.
