Would the following make sense:
- Public domain
- X/MIT, BSD 2/3/4 clause
- CC0, CC-BY, CC-BY-SA
Or perhaps we could just require the license to be an OSI approved one ? The license of grid
files, being data files, should have no consequence on the software stack itself, right ?

Agreed. The README could track the provenance & licensing of grids.

I don't see any remanining CTable file. As far as I can see, in projgrids, all files are CTable2
except the .gsb files (NTV2) and ntv1_can.dat (NTV1). So the ticket can probably be closed.

I imagine that the tests woud probably require downloading a few grids.
