As discussed in our last OSGeo-Live IRC meeting, we are proposing to 
retire the Sahana project from being included on OSGeo-Live.

This is primarily because the people who were previously maintaining 
sahana on OSGeo-Live don't have the bandwidth to continue supporting it, 
and so we are at risk of distributing an untested and unreliable 
application with OSGeo-Live.

I've also been concerned that Sahana has only been including "trunk" 
versions of their software on OSGeo-Live rather than specific version 
numbers, which makes me nervous that the release process and potential 
quality might be immature. (Our aim is to only be distributing stable 
and mature software with OSGeo-Live).

If there are people who can step forward to help with Sahana 
maintenance, then please speak up within the next week, before our IRC 
meeting on Thursday / Friday 31 July 2014.
