Hello Veronica,
thanks for pushing this forward.

Looking from a "it is ready when it is ready" perspective – what we
are missing from functionality to call 8.0 ready? (I mean only things
that are expected to be ready in less than a month)

>From my side:
Band references and integration with signature files are ready to be
merged (please review!), missing functionality can wait for 8.2.

I'll try to work on r.in.pdal this Friday (I need to do some LiDAR
work myself). It is almost merge ready (as long as we add extra
functionality in 8.2)

Then from my side I'd call 8.0 ready.
