Comment (by camerons):

 Reviewed the pull request, all looks good, with the following comments:

 As noted by Felicity (below) it looks like Liblas should be retired with
 the next 14.0 release.
 I've reviewed this current quickstart updates and they look fine. We
 should keep this Quickstart description for 13.1 as the software is still
 included in the 13.0 release.

 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 superseded by the PDAL project."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.
