> Nyall, I am on vacation right now, and have not had time to read all your work (although at a first glance, it looks excellent). I have, however, added suggested changes correcting the actual chronology of PROJ development (pipelines and geodetic building bricks arriving in PROJ v 5, and the results of the GDAL barn raising in v 6).
Thank you -- I've incorporated your improvements, they are much appreciated!

> I have allowed myself to put the reference to the "Knudsen and Evers" paper before the "Evers and Knudsen" one. This is solely to assert my academic priority as the designer and implementer of the PROJ pipeline concept. While unimportant to my current "operational geodesist"-role, it is of importance to my prior (and perhaps future) "research geodesist"-role. Feel free to change the order if this seems like too much vanity for an otherwise perfectly fine day :-)
Perfectly understandable, I've accepted the change.
Enjoy the rest of your vacation!
