Isn't it a premature call?


"By keeping PROJ.4 as the name of the project, rather than the
product, we avoid a lot of unneeded trouble with web presence etc."

"Keeping PROJ.4 as an identifier for the project is also a tribute in
the memory of project founder Gerald I. Evenden."

"find_package (PROJ4 5.0)"

and there has been agreement on that so far.
