In this OSGeo-Live 8.0 development cycle we have seen major upgrades: 
moving to the light weight Lubuntu distribution, moving to a new Long 
Time Support release (LTS), and moving even more applications to make 
use of Debian packaging. It should be our best distribution yet. But 
this has impacted our schedule, as the Ubuntu LTS has only become stable 
within the last week (14.04.1 release), and we need help in order to 
deliver OSGeo-Live toFOSS4G-PDX <http://2014.foss4g.org/>with our usual 
high level of quality and reliability.

In particular, we need help:

 1. Testing to verify everything works in this new system and fixing
    bugs. Download alpha1here
 2. Updating version number in your Project Overview (if changed), and
    possibly mention a new feature or two. Dochowtos
 3. Re-running the Quickstart and ensure each step is still valid, and
    screenshots match the implementation.
 4. Updating status of the Project Overview and Quickstart to "8.0draft"
    in our status sheet. [1]

Due to our tight timelines, we might need to hide applications which we 
can't get stablised, tested, or docs updated in time. Please check our 
current list of open issues [2][3] to verify that your project is 
working as expected.
