no - that is not right. Nicolas Bozon, Jody and me are still there. And 
maybe some more.  But you are right we were not active in the last

I volunteered last year to take care on the printing. But did not be 
active yet. Anyway I would ask the OSGeoLive team for help if needed.

In the end there are Jody and me in the Marketing Committee and also on 
the board (so we can transfer the information). Marketing Committee has 
budget for 2018 to produce USB sticks already - 4800 $.
