now that the rush to get things done before the FOSS4G2008 conference has passed, I feel it is an appropriate time to spin off the conversation
about 2009 LiveDiscs to a new OSGeo mailing list. Especially if it will
be based around Xubuntu and not DebianGIS's liveDisc.
of course anything pertinent to syncing with DebianGIS's liveDisc and
source .deb packages will always be welcome here.
I'd be really stoked if scripts and package lists for both were kept in a
single SVN & wiki. Otherwise the less developed partner will always be far
out of sync and drift away; dilution of our limited dev effort; etc.
