Hi all,

I confirm for OTB, that if gdal 2 is available somewhere in launchpad we can plan to package next stable version 5.2 with it on Xenial. I agree that it should be coordinate decisions between GIS packages. Osgeo-live seems the good place to coordinate this.

I've added otb-developers in cc.

We can build those against GDAL 1.11.2 if it is really needed. The library packages can coexist (but packages will have to be build in a ppa without GDAL 2).
