wow, wow, wow - what a great team effort at the bonn code sprint!

Sitting down with Angelos to review the checklist, some small glitches for
your enjoyment. Very impressed with everyone :)

1) https://live.osgeo.org/en/copyright.html

This page is linked to is great for listing licenses, the "Attributing
OSGeo-Live Documentation
" content may of gotten confused over time?

2) check list examples in italic

These provide context for answering, once answered you can remove sentences
like "*Eg. collaboration on project activities such as testing, release and
feature development.".*

*3) link on software license says LGPL, but the link to the website
copyright just describes content license. Consider linking
to https://github.com/OSGeo/OSGeoLive/blob/master/LICENSE.txt

*4. links for "*documentation is available under an open license" links to
copyright is great, consider adding license to the code repo as well:

5. The text "Provenance Review is required" is incorrect - you have one now!

6. The link to the contributor procedure is pointing to
‚Äčhttp://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Live_GIS_Disc#Subversion this content is
strikes out, do you have a better link?

7. Issue tracker is pointing to
I thought you migrated to a new trac instance for your wiki?

8. Wiki link is great, remember to update it when migrating to new wiki.

9. The management of the project is covered by two pages:

- https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Live_GIS_Management
- https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/OSGeoLive_PSC'

9. For transparent build instructions

The link provided was to Including checkout and build instructions., the
link https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/OSGeoLive_Build is much more useful.

10. For " follows a documented testing process"...

Angelous describes making a spreadsheet and asking volunteers to test
the quickstarts ahead of release. Could you copy the information from here (
https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Live_GIS_Disc_Press_Release_60) to the build
instructions just as a reference.

This would also satisfy the last "Release and testing processes provide
sufficient detail for an experienced programmer to follow" item!
