thanks for this. I understand it may still be early for coding, unless
people @OTB have plans to support OTB6 also on 2.18 (if this is not too
complicated). I think it would however be good to start with the basics:
creating the repo/transferring owneship, etc.
In this way the work can start soon after the API have reasonably
stabilized (I imagine around June or July).
All the best.
