Description

I know with the ubuntugis repo adding both of these is possible, but are there licensing restrictions that would prevent us from including them? http://n2.nabble.com/QGIS-and-ECW-and-MrSid-formats-tt2038243.html#a2038243

How to do add them

uDig is already including them - the license restrictions effect server software as I understand it (and you need to buy a license to work with larger images).

So the only glitch I see now, is that the SDK file sits behind a passworded website. Should we place a copy somewhere more convenient?

AFAIK their license won't allow it.
