comment How to install QGIS 2.8/2.10 on Ubuntu 14.1?
I posted an answer here that contains installation instructions I've proposed to the QGIS team via github: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/133033/… They still work well for me on Ubuntu, Mint, Lubuntu, etc.

@MartinF it means that you don't really represent Ontario (for example) as a single LAT/LON...

SQL spatial is the way to go, either SpatialLite or PostGIS...

comment How to measure the sum of the areas of each class in QGIS?
If you have time or interest, load the polygons into SpatialLite - then you can use SQL operators and functions to solve this quite easily... otherwise you're using GUI's and intermediate data tables and this gets klunky... (PostGIS is ultimately a great solution too, but SpatialLite is a light-weight spatial database format that allows for SQL functions using spatial data)

comment how to create Topology table?
There is pretty good documentation: pgrouting.org/documentation.html I recommend going through the workshop - you learn a lot about the ins and outs of pgrouting, the data, and functions...

comment What tools are available for Public Participatory GIS (PPGIS)?
@L.s. I'd suggest breaking down this problem into your own workflow and begin to pick apart the various pieces that would make your particular PPGIS project work - if public data is your outcome, would CartoDB work as a platform for hosting spatial data? Would LocalData work as a data collection tool? etc. etc... Perhaps a big example of PPGIS is OpenStreetMap, though no one has given it that term before - it does fit the definition!

I've been hearing this for years, but, still have to ask what 'public participatory GIS' is in your opinion / use case?
