[Live-demo] Starting build cycle for OSGeo-Live 9.0

Three years ago we were using the latest 11.04 release, but the last couple
of years we have switched to build only on top of LTS releases for
Before Trusty, we made some effort to backport packages to precise, and I
think the result was a good one, plus we pushed those updates to UbuntuGIS.

Given the latest switch of Ubuntu 15.04 to systemd, I would strongly advise
to stay on 14.04 LTS, until systemd gets stable enough to use as a base
(16.04 LTS)

The software versions (the ones we maintain) will not be the same as in 8.5.
