more and more software using the proj library have switched to version 6,
i.e. have dropped support for version 4.
So I would like to ask whether it would be an option to switch the
proj library to version 6 for Leap 15.2 ?
It is always possible to use proj6 as a replacement of version 4.9.3
using the -DACCEPT_USE_OF_DEPRECATED_PROJ_API_H compiler invocation, so
this should have only marginal implications.

I'm okay with that. It is how I have been using it locally on my
Tumbleweed system.

Isn't it possible also to have both proj4 and proj6 installed? Perhaps
using alternatives? That way existing installed programs can continue
to work. And proj7 is also out with additional API/ABI changes.

I'm adding some more people to the recipients list.
Is there some agreement that it would be a good thing to upgrade?

What would be the next step? Simply doing some OBS request?

I did not check, but I guess the ACCEPT_USE_OF_DEPRECATED_PROJ_API_H quirk
is probably removed in proj7.

It is scheduled to be removed. I think it was postponed in the current
proj7. But removal is eminent.

I have to update my own code. I have not checked to see if the new
method is slower that whatever happened in proj4. I hope not. I use it
is a time critical situation!

Roger, had you a chance to check performance?
