     5We are planning two Arramagong GIS Live DVD releases during 2010 and would like to know what applications and functionality people would like to contribute.
     6
     7Arramagong is based on [http://xubuntu.org XUbuntu] and [http://gisvm.com GISVM], and allows you to try a wide variety of open source geospatial software without installing anything. It is currently available as:
     8* A Live DVD, which is regularly handed out at conferences, most recently being given to all delegates at the [http://2009.foss4g.org 2009 FOSS4G] conference.
     9* A Virtual Machine
     10* Within a web browser from Click2Try: http://www.click2try.com/catalog/Web-Development/Geospatial/Arramagong-GISVM/details
     11
     12The core success of the Arramagong LiveDVD is due to the simple yet powerful build scripts. All that is required for a relevant project to be incorporated into the LiveDVD is to write a bash shell script which installs the application onto an Ubuntu distribution. Hence, our last distribution attracted over 20 developers and from project announcement to a released distribution took under 6 weeks.
     13
     14The stack of popular GeoSpatial Open Source Applications included on the Arramagong LiveDVD includes:
     15* deegree
     16* GDAL
     17* GeoKettle
     18* GeoNetwork
     19* GeoServer
     20* GpsDrive
     21* GRASS
     22* gvSIG
     23* Kosmo
