Starting build cycle for OSGeoLive 13.0

1 March 2019

Are you interested in joining our Open Source GIS experience? The build 
cycle for the next OSGeoLive release 13.0, is going to start. The final 
version is planned to be ready at 30th July 2019 in time for FOSS4G 2019 
in Bucharest [1]. Have a look at our schedule for the detailed steps 

Till then we have many challenges - from simple to challenging, to help 
describe and train people in the value of Open Source GIS.

For this release, we hope to help OSGeo Community projects join 
OSGeoLive, and work out how we can keep within our size constraints.

We'd love to build a cloud version of OSGeoLive for this release. It 
would make OSGeoLive, and OSGeo software much more accessible. It seems 
elusively achievable, but we haven't worked it out yet. If you think you 
could help, we'd love to hear from you.

Get involved
Are you a programmer or packager with experience in one of the Open 
Source GIS applications. Are you a technical writer interested in making 
FOSS4G accessible to all? Are you interested in helping update 
translations to latest documents on Transifex [3] [4].
Contact us

If you would like to add a new project, help us to get in the cloud or 
have another goal you would like to work on and get involved you are 
very welcome.

Please join the OSGeoLive mailing list [5] or meet us on IRC at our 
weekly meeting.
