May I also request that proj-datumgrid-1.6RC1 [0] is promoted to final 
along with the last proj-4.9.3RC?

proj-datumgrid-1.6RC1 has been included in the Debian package since 
proj-4.9.0RC2, but most distributions still use proj-datumgrid-1.5 with 

The "CTable2" format grid shift files are a very welcome change from the 
not architecture independent format used in proj-datumgrid-1.5 and earlier.

No issues have been reported with the proj-datumgrid-1.5 upgrade to 
proj-datumgrid-1.6RC1 in the Debian package which has been available for 
some time now, and included in Ubuntu since wily. I don't think there 
are any blockers to promoting proj-datumgrid-1.6RC1 to final.
