Starting build cycle for OSGeoLive 12 and call for translators

28 February 2018

Are you interested in joining our Open Source GIS experience? The build cycle for the next OSGeoLive release, 12.0, is going to start in 3 weeks at OSGeo Code Sprint 2018 in Bonn [1]. The final version is planned to be ready at 2nd August 2018 in time for FOSS4G 2018 in Dar Es Saalam [2]. Have a look at our schedule for the the detailed steps [3].

Till then we have many challenges - from simple to challenging, to help describe and train people in the value of Open Source GIS.

Translation

Are you multi-lingual and interested in Open Source GIS? At the end of 2017 we moved the translation of OSGeoLive to transifex [4] and we still have many open translations. How about help translate one or two of the Project Overviews or Quickstarts? Have a look at our translation guide [5] to get involved.

Packages

Are you a programmer or packager with experience in one of the Open Source GIS applications. Are you interested in helping update a project to the latest version.
