I see this will be added to the North-American package file.  Do you if these files are normally part of the QGIS distribution?  Wrong place to ask? I am just not sure how various software Libraries interact with each other.  If they are not usually added, I will write a ticket on the QGIS side to have the NTv2.0 file included.

Will it be possible to modify the info on the web site?  I see a previous answer by Don that has the correct web link.  Do you have a ticket system for the web site or are you still able to modify the site?
