[Proj] Original Latex Files?

Two notes:

The first, and probably the second, document are publications of the US government and thus in the public

It isn't difficult to extract the text from the .pdf file, but putting all the LaTeX formatting back would be a lot
of work -- though it would not be difficult to "parallelize" this, with a little community organization.

I haven't heard anything about Gerald since many years and also Frank
been very silent lately. I suppose Frank might have an idea if anybody
here? I think Gerald is (if anywhere) more active on the "libproj" side?
.. if Proj4 was written sometime 1970 first time .. you can count years
your self etc..

If nothing else helps it might be a good time to write them again using
the originals as basis?! (And also compile them all together into a
single manual) .. ??!! Most likely no copyright problems exsist if
original writers are mentioned etc. etc..

It is also possible that any original manual files are lost for ever?!
.. lucky we have the source code still! :)
