Angelos, all,
I concerned about how much new material we are attempting add related to 
Jupyter notebooks, all at the last moment.

With OSGeo-Live, we have built our reputation around quality and 
stability, and I think we should be careful not to compromise that. We 
will attract more users to Jupyter notebooks if they try one excellent 
notebook, and look elsewhere for more, than if they try 10 notebooks 
which almost work.

So before adding a new Notebook, I suggest that it should be tested 
start to finish, and then thoroughly reviewed  by the author, and then 
at least one other person, preferably 2.

Am I right in understanding that we are currently proposing to add ~ 30 
new notebooks? I'd be inclined to pick out 2 to 5 of these and focus on 
getting just these working.
(The remainder can be included on OSGeo-Live for testing and workshops, 
just ensure that you can only find it if provided with the correct URL)

That said, who do we have available to help test notebooks? If you can 
help out, please reply to this email, volunteering your services.
