[http://live.osgeo.org OSGeo Live] provides [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Live_CD bootable ISO-Images] and [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_machine Virtual Machines] which allow users to try out fully-operational versions of popular Free Geospatial Software without the need to install a thing. Everything is set up for you ready to go: just reboot into it, glance at the help pages on the desktop, and go. The existing hard drive and operating system will not be modified in any way, everything happens in temporary system memory. As such it will run a bit slower than the "real thing" and you may want to grab a USB flash drive to save or transfer files with. You can load and boot a live-image completely from a USB stick too if you prefer.
+
 
+
We do this in large part by maintaining automated build scripts which collect many [[OSGeo]] programs and sample data-sets together, and then combine them to form the Live disc or VM itself. By tweaking these scripts users are free to make their own custom distributions, for example localized in their own language and with local map data.

+
* For the [http://2009.foss4g.org/ 2009 FOSS4G conference] a snapshot of Free Geospatial software has been collected onto the [http://arramagong.com Arramagong Live DVD and VM].
+
: ''The Arramagong Live DVD & VM contains a collection of the best Geospatial Open Source software, pre-configured with sample data. The DVD and Virtual Machine are available for download at http://download.osgeo.org/livedvd. Refer to [[Live GIS Disc Quick Start]] to get started.''

== Issue Tracker==
+
Our bug and wish tracker is [http://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/query?group=status&component=LiveDVD&order=priority hosted at OSGeo's Trac system]. To distinguish the LiveDVD project from other OSGeo projects, use the following conventions:
+
; Component field
+
: Set to `<tt>LiveDVD</tt>`
+
; Keywords:
+
: Version: Set to base release version: eg: 4.0, 4.5, 5.0 (not 4.5alpha1)
+
: Application: Set to application with issue (use lower case): eg: "geoserver"
+
 
+
; [https://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/report/10 List of open tickets]
+
 
+
* [https://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/query?status=new&status=assigned&status=reopened&component=LiveDVD&keywords=%7E4.0&order=priority Just those concerning the 4.0 release]
+
* [https://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/query?status=new&status=assigned&status=reopened&component=LiveDVD&keywords=%7E4.5&order=priority Just those concerning the 4.5 release]
+
* [https://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/query?status=closed&group=type&order=priority&component=LiveDVD List of tickets already fixed]
+
 
+
== OSGeo User Id ==
+
* Create an OSGeo id: http://www.osgeo.org/osgeo_userid , which is required to edit the wiki, commit to svn and create an issue in the issue tracker.
+
 
+
== Subversion ==
+
* Subversion: For config files and build scripts. You should always update from the server before editing a file, and always check the diff is as you intended before committing.
+
** Repository: https://svn.osgeo.org/osgeo/livedvd/gisvm/trunk and [http://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/browser/livedvd/gisvm/trunk web view]
+
** On Linux systems: access Subversion using:
+
svn checkout https://svn.osgeo.org/osgeo/livedvd/gisvm/trunk
+
 
+
** On windows systems, install [http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/ Tortoise Subversion], which extends Windows Explorer to include subversion commands.
+
 
+
To get commit access, you need to create yourself a user id, as per http://www.osgeo.org/osgeo_userid, then ask cameronDOTshorter.AT.lisasoftDOTcom to add you to the [https://www.osgeo.org/cgi-bin/auth/ldap_group.py?group=osgeo osgeo] user group.
+
 
+
The first thing you should do to test your svn install is to add your name the contributors list:
+
cd trunk/doc
+
 
+
# to edit a file
+
svn update contributors.csv
+
# edit contributors.csv
+
+
# optionally check to see what has changed.
+
svn diff contributors.csv
+
+
# check the file back into subversion
+
svn commit contributors.csv
+
 
+
# to add a file
+
cd <dir>
+
# create a file
+
svn add <file>
+
svn propset svn:mime-type <mime.type> <file>
+
svn commit <file>
+
 
+
# to move or rename a file
+
svn move <file>
+
svn commit <file>
+
 
+
On windows, it is even easier, using [http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/ Tortoise SVN] which plugs directly into Windows Explorer.

= Use Cases =
+
 
+
There are multiple use cases for this product:
+
 
+
* '''Demo DVD''' that can be handed out at conferences.<br />This will contain a wide variety of applications, preconfigured with some sample data and containing introductory tutorials.  It should be able to function completely offline, at least within the scope of the tutorials, and should provide an introduction to many products.  This is very much a Live DVD, and as such should be conservative with regards to size (it will be run from RAM).
+
* '''Education DVD'''<br />This seems to be a more involved version than the Demo DVD, including more involved material, including train-the-trainer style material.  This is targeted at those who will be teaching others, be it in workshops or university classes/labs.  My expectation (mleslie: feel free to correct me) is that this is more likely to be installed on machines and used as a teaching resource, as opposed to a toy to play with, as with the Demo DVD.  This will require material developed through the [[Category:Education|Education initiative]].
+
* '''Workstation Install DVD'''<br />  This need was seen in Cape Town, where the bandwidth seems to be a very limiting factor.  Using the DVD to install either a complete OS, a set of packages to an existing Linux, or Windows installers completely offline is of great value in the developing world.  Would it be of greater value to lose the Edu or demo material and put in complete application documentation?
