> In short, the Fedora Geo Spin will be a respin of Fedora with packages
> for doing OSM and cartography installed out of the box, or included on
> a LiveCD and/or LiveUSB.  For OSM people, the primary advantage is a
> live usb stick that can be used at mapping parties to save time
> configuring user computers to do mapping. The USB stick can then be
> brought home, and the user can continue doing mapping there. For
> Fedora people, it gives us better Fedora exposure.
> 
> Right now, the spin is a draft, and once completed will be submitted
> to the Fedora Spins process for approval and inclusion in Fedora as a
> blessed spin.
> 
> The link above will be the canonical todo list, for anyone looking to
> participate.  If you wish to help, please feel free to contact me on
> or off these email lists.
