    v1 v1  
     1= Reducing scope of OSGeo-Live for next 11.0 release =
     2
     317 April 2017
     4
     5For our next OSGeo-Live release, 11.0, we propose to reduce the number of packages included, and only support a 64 bit distribution, (32 bit will be built but not tested or officially supported).
     6
     7Factors leading to this suggestion include:
     8* Some projects have dwindling communities and momentum.
     9* Increased OSGeo-Live scope has increased our core maintenance and testing.
     10* Reduced engagement from projects (partly due to less core time spent reaching out to projects)
     11* Missing our first release milestone in 9 years.
     12
     13From our options of reduce quality, become more efficient, increase volunteer engagement, find a sponsor to support core activities, and reduce scope, reducing scope is our most viable and acceptable option. Other ideas are welcomed.
     14
     15Questions we will ask in assessing which projects to keep include:
     16* Is there an ACTIVE OSGeo-Live liaison person/people for the project? Prior list is copied to "Contact" column at: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Q5BaEgQtgw4O1bXyeWMlM8XtAOhUgcjZ7Y2O0FZc2H0/edit?hl=en_GB#gid=2014800150
     17* Has the Project Overview and Quickstart been reviewed and are they current and complete?
     18* Do OpenHub metrics reflect an active and healthy community: https://live.osgeo.org/en/metrics.html
     19* Is the project being updated on OSGeo-Live with each release?
