It would be very valuable to showcase the latest improvements on the Vector Tile world, which is a big absence right now in OSGeo-Live.

GeoServer now has a vector tiles plugin. However, it is considered "stable" only in the 2.11.x series, on the 2.10.x series it is still to be downloaded from the "community" section of nightly builds:

Hopefully we will jump to 2.11.x for OSGeo-Live 11.0 :)

I would volunteer for setting up t-rex ;-)

Space requirements will be minimal (13MB + docs).

I'm currently working on a MVT benchmark which uses a Natural Earth dataset ( I will motivate and help the Geoserver, Mapserver and Tegola teams to implement this benchmark at FOSSG4G in Dar. This could also be a good OSGeoLive tutorial for all these servers!

This benchmark is a great idea.

Can you please apply for t-rex addition in OSGeoLive as described here?

With the addition of t-rex and MVT support from PostGIS, MapServer and GeoServer I think we can now consider this less critical...
