Thanks Rashad for your prompt reply. I think Victor, Alex, and Nyall
(who is refactoring Processing for QGIS 3 and porting it to C++) are in
the best position to reply.

thousands of users saying that we cannot miss OTB from Processing. Same
for R, this has been raised recently on the mailing list.
I think the steps are:
* create an independent provider (sub-plugin of Processing) for OTB
* publish it on the official repo.
Rashad, would you be willing to take ownership of that plugin?
All the best, and thanks again.
