OsGeoLive V13 Press Release - draft

Johanna Botman

Hi,

 

I have a draft of the press release for version 13. We can discuss this further at the weekly meeting to be held Tuesday evening (or Wednesday morning Australian time). My apologies for the delay – I’m still getting used to lists.

______

Starting build cycle for OSGeoLive 13 and call for translators and documenters

 

28 February 2019

 

Are you interested in joining our Open Source GIS experience? The build cycle for the next OSGeoLive release, 13.0, is going to start in 3 weeks at OSGeo Code Sprint 2019 in Minneapolis-St. Paul [1]. The final version is planned to be ready at 2nd August 2019 in time for FOSS4G 2019 in Bucharest [2]. Have a look at our schedule for 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.

 

For version 13.0 we are looking to build a cloud version of the release and are looking for volunteers to help with the build and the documentation.

 

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.

 

Are you a technical writer interested in making FOSS4G accessible to all?

 

Join us at OSGeo Code Sprint 2019

 

There will be the OSGeo Code Sprint 2019 in Bucharest from 14th to 17th May 2019 [1]. Some people from OSGeoLive team will be there. We'd love to see you, whether you are new to Open Source or an experienced old timer.

I think we have a mismatch in dates here? This code sprint seems to in May, which is a few months away, rather than 3 weeks.

The final version is planned to be ready at 2nd August 2019 in time for FOSS4G 2019 in Bucharest [2]. Have a look at our schedule for the detailed steps [3].

I've updated our schedule for this year:

(We are currently a month ahead of when we started last year).

 

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

 

For version 13.0 we are looking to build a cloud version of the release and are looking for volunteers to help with the build and the documentation.

Rather than docs, I think our focus will be on helping to bring OSGeo community projects onto OSGeoLive:

"For this release, we hope to help OSGeo Community projects join OSGeoLive, and work out how we can keep within our size constraints."

"We'd love to build a cloud version of OSGeoLive for this release. It could make OSGeoLive, and OSGeo software much more accessible. It seems elusively achievable, but we haven't worked it out yet. If you think you could help, we'd love to hear from you."

Are you a technical writer interested in making FOSS4G accessible to all?

I think we should be inviting people to our email list, or weekly IRC rather than a code sprint, which only a few people can get to.
