@DesPetrie I have Qt and QWT updated to use the new directory structure for Qt. I've pulled down the SA app source and am going over it now.

@DesPetrie: I am working on QuaZIP and OSSIM. I contacted the developer of QuaZIP, and with his help, I was able finally to compile QuaZIP manually. I am now writing the build scripts and tests for QuaZIP.

Contacting the developer made me consider what it takes, in terms of licensing, to use his software. Fortunately, QuaZIP uses an LPGL license, so we can use it in commercial applications. I have not checked the licenses of other third-party libraries, to ensure that we can use them in commercial applications. Is this something that you would like me to do, or have Wes and you already looked into licensing?

Thank you.

I know we looked into them in the past, but I'm not sure about anything in the last few years.

To be safe, as we test the libraries, also check the licensing

We should start a spreadsheet tracking this

@WesHildebrandt I'll turn the libraries status sheet into a license tracker as well and distribute
