Hi all,

I see there is discussion on QGIS list about our documentation.

Currently live.osgeo.org points to the QGIS version and tools included 
in OSGeoLive distribution (7.0).
The quickstart on the main site will not be updated to QGIS 2.x until 
next OSGeoLive release, when QGIS will be upgraded too.

Since 7.0 is released, our svn trunk is now open again for changes. When 
QGIS 2.x packages are released, OSGeoLive will include it. It would be 
cool to have someone from the QGIS dev team to step up and update the 
quickstart. Note: the nightly doc builds are available here:
