    1114* Please describe your Project.
    12   * 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. 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. The documentation has been translated into over 10 languages.</span> <span style="color:orange">

     17  * The documentation has been translated into over 10 languages.
    1318  * 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.
    1419  * 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.
     20

    89123== Processes
     
    100134* The project has a suitable open governance policy ensuring decisions are made, documented and adhered to in a public manner. ''This typically means a Project Management Committee has been established with a process for adding new members. A robust Project Management Committee will typically draw upon developers, users and key stakeholders from multiple organizations as there will be a greater variety of technical visions and the project is more resilient to a sponsor leaving.''
    101135  * Yes, Project Management Committee and management processes are defined at: https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Live_GIS_Management
     136
    102137* The project uses public communication channels for decision making to maintain transparency. ''E.g. archived email list(s), archived IRC channel(s), public issue tracker.''
    103138  * YES: http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Live_GIS_Disc#Contact_Us
     
    108143  * Including sufficient detail to guide a new user through performing the core functionality provided by the application.
    109144    * YES: The project has extensive Project Overviews and Quickstarts, specifically designed for getting new users up and running quickly. These are linked from: http://live.osgeo.org/en/index.html and http://live.osgeo.org/en/overview/overview.html
     145
    110146* The project has developer documentation:
    111147  * YES: How to add a new project to OSGeo-Live is covered in detail. Linked from: http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Live_GIS_Disc#How_to_add_a_project_to_OSGeoLive
     
    125161  * Which includes execution of the testing process before releasing a stable release.
    126162  * The project has an established build and release process, but it needs to be more clearly documented. Some information here: http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Live_GIS_Disc#Build_Process . The release management role is well established, but not documented. This includes setting up a schedule, sending out press releases, chasing up projects, etc, etc.
     163
    127164* The project follows a documented testing process. (Ideally, this includes both automated and manual testing)(Ideally this includes documented conformance to set quality goals, such as reporting Percentage Code Coverage of Unit Tests.)
    128165  * OSGeo-Live is an integration project, which is difficult to create automated testing for. Instead we rely on manual testing. The testing process is well practiced, but needs to be documented better
     166
    129167* Release and testing processes provide sufficient detail for an experienced programmer to follow.
    130168  * TBD: Waiting on improved documentation.
