During my work on the Quickstarts, a few things came up that I need to
raise more broadly. One of these was a comment Howard made about Liblas:

"The project is in dormant maintenance mode at this time. It has been
superseded by the PDAL project."

I'm sharing this to start a conversation.

Hi Howard,

Thanks for your response.

I have reviewed the liblas QuicksStart and the PR is here:

I made minor changes. I know you don't have any time to look at this,
but would you be able to quickly cast your eye over it?

If not, that's fine. See how you go. I can include liblas in my list
of projects to raise with the broader OSGeoLive team to re-consider
for the next version.

 I do not have time for such a thing.

 I'm probably the best person unfortunately.
