[OSGeoLive] Fwd: [Projects] Reminder - OSGeo Minneapolis Code Sprint Coming Up Fast

I will likely be spread pretty thin already.  I'm happy to help with things but I am not in a position to take the lead on anything.

I'm not sure if anyone has taken this on and I don't have the resources to dedicate to it.  My biggest annoyance is the limitations from the Ubuntu casper and usbcreator tools.  In particular, the 4GB limit on the rootfs size and the loss in the later Ubuntu tools of natively supporting a persistence file on USB devices.  I know, for instance, that the Debian live-build project [1] has a lot more flexibility around those points (supports rootfs on a second partition - can be a raw squashfs, or split across multiple squashfs files, lots of possibilities for persistence files).

We have a great venue at the University of Minnesota and the weather in Minnesota is finally looking up! Of course it really helps with planning if have an idea of how many folks might attend.
