Thank you Jody for your guidance!

While reviewing our incubation list with Jody last night I realized that we
have a problem with our wiki. Information is there but scattered around and
not easy to find. It was suprisingly difficult to locate the licensing
information etc.

Lets try to address those issues today (Bonn Code Sprint still goes on,
luckily OSGeoLive members are still in the venue until tomorrow)

> Sitting down with Angelos to review the checklist, some small glitches for

> 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
> <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:
> https://github.com/OSGeo/OSGeoLive-doc
> 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 https://trac.osgeo.org/
> osgeo/query?group=status&component=LiveDVD&order=priority, 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!
