We intentionally ask projects to test last stable release (10.5):
There are quickstarts that have not been checked for a long time since 
we did not have enough volunteers to do this kind of testing for the 
last couple of releases (we did some minimum testing to see if each 
application starts up + some deeper testing for some core applications).
This is the reason why we are "rebooting" the Live with 11.0, we need 

All projects were removed by default at the start of the 11.0 
development cycle, this is why you do not find gpsprune in the latest build.
We have been adding the projects one by one, once we have tested their 
quickstart or once we get confirmation from the project maintainers that 
they tested.

If a project proposes a new version we can enable it for a nightly build 
to test the quickstart there. This only happens if we get a pull request 
with the installer update (or if there is a new upstream debian package).

In case you have already tested gpsprune for 10.5 and all work fine, we 
can enable it ASAP.
