    1419* Please describe your Project.
    15   * OSGeo-Live is a self-contained bootable DVD, USB thumb drive or Virtual Machine based on Lubuntu, that allows you to try a wide variety of open source geospatial software without installing anything.
    16   * It includes 50+ Open Source Geospatial applications pre-configured with sample data, 1 page project overviews for each project, and a Quickstart to quickly test each application.
    17   * The documentation has been translated into over 10 languages.
    18   * For incubation purposes, we are focusing on the scripts and processes used to build OSGeo-Live. We are not incubating all 50+ projects we package.
    19   * Cameron Shorter comment: This is sub-optimal because a casual observer may deduce that if OSGeo-Live has reached incubation quality, then all included packages should have also reached such quality. This assumption is incorrect and could be a reason for OSGeo-Live to not be officially recognised as an OSGeo incubated project.
