Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] FOSS4G2009 to reach those who cannot attend

2009-08-01 Thread Cameron Shorter

Maning, Massimo, Alex, Ravi,

Thank you all for your kinds offers of help with the LiveDVD. This is 
greatly appreciated, will be very valuable, and will also make space for 
the overly committed FOSS4G local organising committee to focus on the 
other aspects of the FOSS4G conference.


As I see it, this is what needs to be done:
1. Anyone who is interested, please subscribe to the live-dvd email 
list, where we can continue the rest of this discussion. 
http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/live-demo


The wiki associated with this project is at:
http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/FOSS4G_2009_Live_DVD
and
http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Live_GIS_Disc

2. We need someone who can continually keep track of the status of the 
LiveDVD. Determine what it contains, what package versions are on it, 
how much space is being used, what should and should not be on it etc.

This data should be kept up to date in this wiki:
http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/FOSS4G_2009_Live_DVD

2b. Revise the LiveDVD schedule, and then track to it.
http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/FOSS4G_2009_Schedule

3. The LiveDVD needs to be tested, and make sure that the current, and 
any future packages all work together without impacting each other. Any 
issues found need to be tracked in the issue tracker.


4. Someone needs to contact all interested parties for the LiveDVD, and 
encourage them to provide data or software, or configurations, etc for 
the LiveDVD. This includes:
* Workshop and tutorial authors who may want to hand out a DVD at the 
conference.

* OSGeo projects already on the LiveDVD, or who want to get on the DVD
* UbuntuGIS, DebianGIS, GISVM, OSGeo4W packaging projects, which have 
significant synergies with the LiveDVD

* And any other people who want to help out.

5. Add what ever new packages, linux software, windows installers, etc 
to the LiveDVD. This is the technical grunt work.
Note that the packaging projects like DebianGIS and UbuntuGIS are quite 
robust, and have been very helpful in getting new people started with 
packaging, and many of these people are also on the LiveDVD email list.


Welcome aboard.
I suggest that any volunteers join the live-demo email list, and respond 
to this email suggesting how you might want to help.

So we have budget for the LiveDVD. We have an old version
of the LiveDVD (based on FOSS4G 2008). What we need to
continue through to completion is to have someone who will
coordinate the compiling of the DVD.  This is primarily a
project management role, keeping track of what is on the DVD
and what should be on it, contacting workshop authors, and
project leads and helping them get their projects onto the
DVD etc.




Sound like you? It would be an incredibly valuable
contribution to FOSS4G and the greater OSGeo community at

2009-08-01 Thread Massimo Di Stefano
 the relative if statment  
to check the module presence.

after this littlle hack i have remastersys semi-working on sidux too.
the live-dvd produced has a working gis software (also 3d with  
ossimplanet) but unluky the script fails to configure the network  
(resolvconf problems)

and it has missed the install to hd tools.
(i'm subsribed to the remastersys forum and i'm tring to get support  
about this problem)





in short word :

using debian or ubuntu i'm not able to have a really platform  
independent 3d environment but i have an installable live-dvd


while on sidux i have all working in live-mode except to the  
resolvconf-dhcp problem (i'll meet a server-mantainers in the next   
days to face out this problem)


again the live is not yet installable on HD (i'm tring to solve this  
on the remastersys forum).





5. Add what ever new packages, linux software, windows installers,  
etc to the LiveDVD. This is the technical grunt work.
Note that the packaging projects like DebianGIS and UbuntuGIS are  
quite robust, and have been very helpful in getting new people  
started with packaging, and many of these people are also on the  
LiveDVD email list.


i've discuss about the osgeo live-dvd project on our local-chapter  
list, we'll be avaiable to produce a local dataset and localized  
documents.


my idea is to use as example data a common dataset based on global  
data + a localized dataset based on local-free data if avaiable.
however we need a common tutorial/how-to workshop files to follow as  
guide-line for the local chapters.



just a littel consideration maybe is is obviouse,
i'm tring the variouse .iso produced and is my idea that the live.iso  
works really more fast if it is booted in a virtualbox machine
i do some test on the live.iso, i find that running it in a VirtualBox  
Machine,  it is really fast rather than a boot from cd.




thanks to read this long-confuse mail and for any feedback.

Massimo.

I think Massimo is right, there are lots of people who can not attend
FOSSG4, but would like to learn
through Internet the workshops and conferences. As it is a fast growing
field, the sooner the better. Please,
if there is a way to help this happen, let me know!

I can help in seeing the draft of workshops/Labs that deal with Vector-GIS and

 I agree that most of it is done each time, except for a few
 instances
 
 Example:'Download data from the CD provided', is
 given in the lab pdf.. but the data is not given for
 download...
 
 Example:'Run the pg_setenv.bat file first,'
 (FOSS4G2007).. even on date a nice archive is available from
 the FOSS4G2007 website, data, text etc..
 
 but, the pg_setenv.bat, not there.
 
 
 
 This may be trivial for experts, but for those learning
 through the internet and depending on 'Discuss
 Lists', it will be a roadblock.

 I think Massimo is right, there are lots of people who can
 not attend FOSSG4, but would like to learn
 through Internet the workshops and conferences. As it is a
 fast growing field, the sooner the better. Please,
 
 if there is a way to help this happen, let me know!
 
 I am from Mexico, so if there is some need for spanish
 translation, or any other work I'll be glad to help.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] FOSS4G2009 to reach those who cannot attend

These are all kind thoughts. Would you consider volunteering to help
put together the conference live DVD? You can see an example from
FOSS4G2008 etc...

 Hi All,
 FOSS4G every year is a keenly followed event. Many await the publication of 
 material on the website eagerly such that they can follow labs, workshops and 
 presentations of choice.

 So the present organisers may please request those especially conducting 
 labs/workshops to keep in mind the multitudes who browse them through the 
 internet can have equal benefit. This can be achieved my keeping on the 
 internet for download
 1. All the binaries that are required for the exercise
 2. All the data that are required for the exercise
 3. All the printed material provided for the exercise
 4. All the other material provided to the attendees, CD or DVD etc
