Hi David,

I'm involved in the OSGeoLive project, and the Open Source Geospatial 
Foundation (OSGeo).

The OSGeo Foundation [1] is the umbrella organisation the leading Open 
Source Geospatial applications.

OSGeoLive packages ~ 50 of these applications [2] into a Lubuntu Linux 
distribution, along with data, project overviews, and quickstarts, ready 
to use by new users and in workshops. Docs are translated into multiple 
languages. It is useful for new users learning about spatial 
applications, for trainers teaching about maps, and is an effective 
marketing pipeline for these applications.

Guillaume had joined our OSGeoLive channel [3] and I was asking whether 
he thought there would be opportunities to us to collaborate with qwant 
maps? He suggested you might be better positioned to answer that.

Feel free to reply publicly to our OSGeoLive list, 
osgeolive at lists.osgeo.org. (There will be others interested in your 
response as well.)
