CASA Software Engineering Project: Standardize Casa Package Contents

CASA package contents is inconsistent between OS X dmgs, Linux tar, and Enterprise Linux rpms, and none of these follow UNIX conventions as consistently as they could. This unnecessarily increases the work required by users and developers to work with CASA on different platforms.

Redesign all CASA packages to contain

  1. A consistently organized core package following UNIX conventions, and
  2. platform specific extensions to that core as required.

Status: See CAS-6306.
