Dear Angelos and all

Regarding to quickstart/manuals of UN OSGeo Challenge 2: GeoAnalysis--it will be
prepared by around the end of April 2018 (or earlier). I will send you a link
when it will be ready.

If you need hands for documentation of the Challenge 2, three mentors of the
Challenge 2(Prof. D.H Cho, Mr. Minpa Lee, HaeKyong Kang) will be pleased to 

PS. Sorry for my late response because of my business trip.

     Hi all,

     We had a short discussion about this topic 2 weeks ago in our weekly
     OSGeoLive meeting, where we asked for volunteers to mentor this initiative.

     As a result of those challenges for OSGeoLive I would see:
     1. Some updated quickstarts (e.g. GeoNode which is the code base of 
     2. New workshop materials being added in the wiki we publish, along with
     their data.

     Any volunteers for helping out as mentors for the documentation?

         Dear Cameron
         Yes, we already presented the initiative to Angelos and Astrid.
         Many thanks for the suggestions.
         About the criteria
         1) being charter member is not mandatory; everybody can apply. On the
         other side charter members are people who were awarded with this title
         and we believe that it is worth to be considered.
         2) we want to have young people but with experience in education and
         training as they have to produce this kind of material.
         I believe there are many good candidates and the competition will be
         very high.

         Thanks a lot also for the typos that we will correct.

         Oggetto: Re: [UN] UN OSGeo Challenge

         Maria, OSGeo UN Committee, OSGeoLive team,

         Great initiative, I'm very supportive.

         I'm excited to see OSGeoLive engaged prominently in the criteria. I
         think that OSGeoLive has the potential to be a great asset to the
         education community and this is an excellent initiative to fast track 

         Have you been talking with someone from the OSGeoLive team about the
         practical implementation? (Angelos would be a good start). There are a
         few things that I think need to be thought through:

         * OSGeoLive is currently space constrained to our distribution medium.
         Typically a 4 Gig or 8 Gig USB. Large teaching datasets could cause us
         challenges. We have options to address this, but it is something we
         should consider up front.

         * OSGeoLive has remained a healthy project for 8 years in part because
         we have ensured our cost of maintenance doesn't exceed our volunteer
         capacity. We need to think through how can maintain any material
         created, and how we can keep maintenance requirements to a minimum.

         * I'd suggest this be changed to "has demonstrable experience within 
         OSGeo community". One of our best technical contributors to OSGeoLive,
         who regularly also gave great council, as well as writing very good
         documentation, was someone who shunned titles and has never signed up 
         be an OSGeo Charter member. (As I write this, I think he'd be a good
         candidate for this project - if he could be tempted). There are others
         like him. They shouldn't be excluded from applying.
         On the other hand, there are some OSGeo Charter members who have done
         little after joining. I believe creating a "honey-pot" will lead to
         people applying for charter membership for personal benefit instead of
         altruistic reasons.

         * I question the purpose of this? If you are trying to increase young
         people applying, then an age break at 40 doesn't help the struggling 
         of the age spectrum. (I'd be more inclined to make a break at say 25).
         I think you will find older people, will self select themselves out
         based on their typically higher pay grade.
         I'd be inclined to remove this criteria all together.
