[Live-demo] OSGeo-Live 10.5 schedule updates

We will be running into our usual problem of having major decision 
points happening over the Christmas holiday period. (Possibly more of a 
issue for us in the Southern Hemisphere because it is our long summer 
holiday period). However, moving a few weeks either way doesn't really 
help much.

One thing I suggest we consider is whether we decide to drop back to 1 
release per year. OSGeo-Live is more stable than it used to be, and I 
question the return-on-effort we gain by putting out 2 releases per year.

Warm regards, Cameron.
