     6Hi all,
     7
     8We, the OSGeo-Live team, have been struggling to get the latest OSGeo-Live 10.5 release out due to quality issues. During our testing sprint, we have found many issues such as:
     9* Referenced layers from being unavailable,
     10* Quickstarts being out of date with applications, (especially screenshots being wrong)
     11* And some broken applications.
     12
     13With this this release that we are running into a mismatch between aggregate volunteer hours available, and amount of work required. In particular, collectively we've had less volunteers from each project committing to updating and testing their applications and quickstarts. This may be in part our fault for not chasing enough, or for doing more and more of the work and having others then expect this from us.
     14
     15But for whatever reason, we are going to have to make some hard decisions with regards to getting this release out. We don't want to compromise on quality, so we will be commenting out applications which are not working or have significant issues with quickstarts.
     16
     17Projects which have been earmarked to be commented out are below (there may be others we find)
