Thanks for your response. The Geomajas' community has traditionally been 
very responsive and helpful when we have reached out which we appreciate 
and goes in your favour.

If GeoMajas can update their quickstart to OSGeo-Live standards within 
the next week (preferably the next few days), my recommendation to the 
OSGeoLive PSC will be that we keep GeoMajas (at the current version) for 
this upcoming release, and re-assess based on activity for the next release.

Documentation guides are here:


Good luck.
