[OSGeoLive] MOTION not to merge PR#4 on gitea

Sorry for my late response. I am also confused about Vicky's intent for 
this motion.

If it is because Vicky would like to see the template quickstart checked 
in via github, then I can see that has already been done, and I'm fine 
with that.

However, I suspect Vicky has concerns about:

1. Adding a new "generic" quickstart template.
I'm in favour of adding a new generic template. Feedback we have 
received from documentarians in TheGoodDocsProject was that there are 
strong reasons for not using an exemplar template (as I originally set 
up a long time ago).
1.1 It projects favouritism and potential resentment.
1.2 Successful projects are continually changing, and there is a high 
chance that your exemplar project will become out of date. It is better 
to create an imaginary project which doesn't change

2. Concerns about the content of the template quickstart (which 
currently still references udig).
2.1 I agree with Vicky's concerns. I suggest we make the template 
"generic". When I have a spare moment I'll provide more detailed 
feedback in Felicity's call for review.
