I saw that some packages do not need updates, because I think the 
authors have dropped the development (for example xplanet).

I grabbed also *pdal*, the update is almost ready, but I'm studying how 
to install automatically various optional dependencies if detected: 
unlike gdal, pdal enables various plugins only if users set explicitly 
respectives flags in cmake (DBUILD_PLUGIN_X=ON). Some dependencies have 
no slackbuilds in SBo, so they have to be created next time.
