PDAL 2.0.1 packaged for Fedora including vertical datums and grids

Cologne city shown as colorized 3D point cloud (data source: openNRW Germany)The latest PDAL release (Point Data Abstraction Library, http://www.pdal.io/, version 2.0.1) has now been packaged for Fedora Linux.
I have cleaned up the dependencies (also the annoying former installation bug with PDAL-devel has been resolved).

The installation is as simple as this (the repository is located at Fedora’s COPR):

# enable and install PDAL
sudo dnf copr enable neteler/pdal
sudo dnf install PDAL PDAL-libs PDAL-vdatums

# if you want to compile other software like GRASS GIS with PDAL support, then you also need
sudo dnf install PDAL-devel
# Now, run PDAL:
pdal-config --version
pdal --help

Enjoy!
