[Webcom] Link OSGeo projects to OSGeoLive Project Overviews

Have a look at the links to the OSGeo web page.
You will see that most links point to http://osgeo.org/<project> which 
is an out of date page.
(At some point, I understand the web committee decided it best to point 
to consistent pages.)

What I'm proposing is if we do point to an OSGeo page, we should at 
least point to an up to date one, hence the OSGeo-Live page.
