 Where you can read:

   ''Cameron Shorter comment: This is an issue because a casual observer
 would naturally deduce that if OSGeo-Live has reached incubation quality,
 then all included packages should have also reached such quality. This
 assumption is incorrect and should not be promoted by OSGeo, and is a
 reason for OSGeo-Live not to be officially recognised as an OSGeo
 incubated project.''

 This can be deduced:
 - OSGeoLive has no intention to be a OSGeo Project
 - OSGeoLive has no intention to be a OSGeo Incubation project
 - OSGeoLive has not shown intention to be a OSGeo Community project

 Vicky’s Conclusion: OSGeo Live is not OSGeo related project, but uses
 OSGeo resources, like the wiki, and issue tracker, and its under OSGeo
 organization on Hithub.

 Interesting that there is an Incubation graduation checklist, and the
 project is not incubating, and is not a community project.

 It is being suggested to apply to be community project:

 Reinforced that suggestion on:
