Thank you John

I've updated our liveCd page with the link to your repo.

First feed backs are coming, ex:
This is cool! What is the timeframe for a regular release?  I use the
foss4g2006 laussane cd for my gis classes.  Where you part of the
developer of the lausanne cd?
I'm currently downloading right now.

Can you add:
gpsbabel (qgis gps plugin and v.in.babel requires this)
josm (for OSM)

custom sample data:
I can make a sample data for the Philippines

How can I help?


Really don't know if he's using the GDF liveCD or one of ours.

anyway gpsbabel will be added

other Josm, I have to admit my great admiration for OSM, but we have  to 
decide if we want a Java stack liveCD different from the C and derivates 
in this way we'll have 2 Desktop liveCD and 2 Server LiveCD.

what's your opinion?
