 Dear OSGeoLive Team,

 again thanks for your effort.

 We contact you again to share with you our current status with regard to
 this issue in order to know if you have progressed or can provide us with
 some insight to solve the issue.

 From our side, we have been analyzing a different approach, which is not
 ideal but could solve the issue (our first option would be to solve the
 issue in the installer).
 Please see below our rationale and the alternative approach.

 The ETF, in order to work properly, needs to download a .zip file (''ets-
 repository-osgeolive-15.zip'') and unzip it at: ''$ETF_FOLDER/projects
 These files are needed to load a set of tests in the ETF.
 In the RC1, the unzipped file was not present in the mentioned folder.
 We tested the installation script in the beta and it worked.
 Thus, we are not sure of what could happen in the VM building process so
 these files are not present there.

 Then, we have been considered a different approach where we download the
 ''ets-repository-osgeolive-15.zip'' in the start process. It is not ideal,
 but will also solve the issue.\\

 We could make a PR of this potential solution, but, given that it is a
 kind of workaround, we would like to share it with you in advance.

 Thus, our questions are:\\

 1) Did you have the chance to check the issue in the installer so you can
 provide us with some insights to solve it?
 2) Do you think it is appropriate to solve the issue by downloading and
 unzipping the required file in the start process as an alternative to
 solve the issue (a PR can be done inmediately from our side).

 Thanks a million for your great contribution.
