Hi Cameron, thank's for the review. All your comments make sense.

 I'll test the svn access and update the documentation next week.

Thank's again.

> Core Features
>
>    - image access: optimized read/write access for most of remote sensing
>    image formats, meta-data access, visualization;
>    - orthorectification and Map Projection
>    - calibration functionnalities
>    - *Cameron: Say either "calibration" or "calibration functions"*
>     - image fusion
>    - filtering: blurring, denoising, enhancement;
>    - feature extraction: interest points, alignments, lines;
>    - object detection
>    - image segmentation: region growing, watershed, level sets;
>    - classification: K-means, SVM, Markov random fields;
>    - object-based image analysis
>    - geospatial analysis
>    - SAR data analysis
>    - change detection.

> *Website:* http://www.orfeo-toolbox.org/

> *Licence:* CeCILL

> *Cameron: As CeCILL is not directly OSI approved, I suggested adding

>
> *Software Version:* 3.8.0
>
> *Supported Platforms:* Linux, Mac, Windows
>
> *API Interfaces:* C++
>
> *Commercial Support:* http://www.osgeo.org/search_profile
>  QuickstartĀ¶
>
>    - Quickstart documentation
>
>  *Cameron: I've only quickly skimmed the Quickstart and haven't had time
> to do a proper review. However my first stand-out comment is that the
> Quickstart should not be describing the C++ interface as part of the OTB
> library. (In general, our users will not be programmers.) Instead just
