Just to add to the mix, and stir the pot somewhat, an idea to consider on this . . . what about . . .

having some sort of support stack/infrastructure in place for providing the OSGeo-Live as a bunch of different devices and (portable) services.  For example,

  *   Generating the Thumb Drives
     *   These should be generated as needed, based on our usage locally for different events.  When we don’t end up using some of them at a particular event, we end up re-writing them with the newer version of OSGeo-Live for the next event.  Not really an economically sound model.
  *   Setting up something like a Raspberry Pi with OSGeo-Live. Possibly for resale, certainly as a download for other to install.
  *   Setting up a Cloud (OSGE Certified?!) version of OSGe-Live
  *   As has been mentioned before, an application picker for installation of software would go a long ways.
     *   There’s a bit of effort required for this one I’ll grant you, but it would certainly go along was toward promoting OSGeo.
  *   Cloud service(s) version of OSGeo.
  *   Setting up a Docker . . .

Well you get the idea,  if your going to pay for something, may as well go for broke.  You end up with a one stop shop and possibly a container of sorts for other projects to add in their own dedicated versions of the same sort of devices/services.

I would like to also support the idea that it is convenient to have someone (ideally many) to do the "mass production" of the OSGeo Live USBs esp for  training and education programs globally . Are there any SMEs doing this? If not, this is a great opportunity for the SMEs in the OSGeo ecosystem to move in and expand.

Best wishes,
