thank you for reaching out about OSGeo Live entry in the UCGIS
GIS&T Body of Knowledge https://gistbok.ucgis.org/bok-basic-page/welcome-gist-body-knowledge
It was formerly a printed book, the new edition is a dynamic, peer reviewed on-line document
heavily used for designing and teaching university level courses so it is a high impact initiative.

First a little bit of background:
I was invited to comment on several topics and to write on Open Source Software Development
in Programming and Development knowledge area together with Anna and Vasek

There is already quite a bit of open source material, e.g. here

but I felt that OSgeo Live and some other topics should be covered as well
and I was asked to provide suggestions for possible authors.
The topics have a prescribed template and the existing entries linked above provide good examples of how the text and figures
should look like.
 I made a suggestion for including OSGeo Live in Computing Platforms Knowledge Area
and the editor in chief John Wilson is interested in including it in Examples and Applications

So please let me know whether I can provide your name and perhaps others who could take
this task on - you would be then officially invited by the topic editor

Thank you,
