Hi Ben -
  I was reviewing some old emails regarding Unidata THREDDs server and 
OSGeo-Live for netCDF and others, and I noticed that in a reply, you 
say :
     (as I know GeoServer much better than THREDDS)
   This is great to read today.. perhaps I can let go of the idea 
that Unidata THREDDs is important for the OSGeo-Live project. We never 
got real attention, although there was some interest from Unidata 
  best regards from Berkeley, California

what is the process for building the full OSGeo Live image itself? The
top-level README refers to bin/main.sh which does not exist. 

I got pretty far even on a LUbuntu Live VM, with git manually installed,
as an experiment. I will make a proper VM. I stuck with 16.04 as you
advised, not 16.04.1. I was able to use the script to install GeoServer
2.8.3 and the INSPIRE and CSS extensions. I think an upgrade to 2.10.x
is in order. I will need to check that we can use OpenJDK 8. 

I plan to join next week's IRC meeting. I have been following the
mailing list but not yet made myself known. I know Cameron from when I
worked in Australia, and I am probably closer to him in distance and
time zones in New Zealand than when I worked in Perth!

Kind regards,
