Hi Cameron,

Thanks for the info. This is a good idea to involve Geo4All labs in the testing aspects. We have a good network of real multi disciplinary users who are experts in thier respective fields as well as at different levels (from professors to students), so an ideal mix to test and provide feedbacks.

Good idea to include a brief description of OSGeo to the OSGeo-Live home page. If you could mention  Geo4All and provide a link it will be great .

Geo4All community - Please provide your feedbacks, inputs on this suggestion. May be this is also the time to get one of the labs volunteer for "Software of the month" section that we are planning for the Geo4All monthly newsletter highlighting one of 50+ OSGeolive projects each month. Any labs willing to volunteer for this, please let me or Nikos know. It will be greatly appreciated.

All ideas welcome.

Best wishes,

Hi Suchith,

It is great to see such uptake of OSGeo-Live from the Geo4All community, and you are right, there is potential for cross advertising between projects.

We discussed this and your request in our OSGeo-Live weekly meeting today.

One of our weaknesses in the OSGeo-Live team is our ability to continuously keep the project maintained, current, and TESTED. Testing is something that the Geo4All community could help us with, because as users you are the experts we need feedback from users to confirm projects work as expected.

To date, OSGeo-Live has added logos to our webpages for organisations and communities who have contributed something tangible (and usually sustained) toward OSGeo-Live development. If the Geo4All could coordinate something similar, (maybe in the form of sustained testing resources, or extensions to documentation), then it would be appropriate to add a Geo4All logo to OSGeo-Live.

That said, we do think it would make sense to include a brief (one or two sentence) description of OSGeo to the OSGeo-Live home page. This might include a mention of Geo4All.

Warm regards, Cameron

Hi  Marc, all,

Our colleagues at Geo4All (the official  OSGeo's Education outreach) are actively promoting OSGeoLiveDVDs to esp. those who are new to learn and then switch over to OSGeo. Our focus is reaching out to new communities and it will be really helpful if you can arrange OSGeo Live DVDs to be handed out at the FOSS4G and other events . If you can have Geo4All logo added to the LiveDVDs it will be very helpful.

Could someone help us with adding the Geo4All logo and url to the OSGeoLive DVDs. Many thanks.
