Hi OSGeo Live folks,
I know I said I'd retired, but this opportunity is too good to slip by. The
stars are lining up to solve an illusively difficult cross-domain glossary
management problem, and I feel that the OSGeoLive project has a relatively
small but super important role to play.

So I propose the OSGeoLive commits to the following:
1. OSGeoLive docs will include the OSGeo glossary generated out of the
OSGeo Lexicon project.
+1 Cameron

2. OSGeoLive will help our tech writers reach out to all the OSGeo project
points of contact. (The tech writers are offering to do most of the leg
work. It will be a case of providing introductions and sharing contact
+1 Cameron

3. OSGeoLive will help our tech writers reach out to OSGeo translators.
(Again, our tech writers can do much of the leg work.)
+1 Cameron

The remaining details are in the thread below...
