I have collected experience with TeX for quite some time and I am familiar with TeX programming. I have written pgfplots and several contributions to pgf/TikZ.

comment pgfplot log axis more than one tick label per decade (1,2,5,10)
Hm, yes I start to really see the problem. I agree that the result of the combination: ranges around 1, default tick spacing, and log ticks with fixed point is useless. But I still see a need to define what is the correct solution. Perhaps we should discuss this outside of this Q&A forum; maybe mail is a good idea. My address is on top of the pgfplots manual.

comment pgfplot log axis more than one tick label per decade (1,2,5,10)
Well, that might be true for your application. In general, 1-2-5-10 is unsuitable since it has an uneven space and applies only to a very limited number range (even if we include 1-10-100). Note furthermore that log ticks with fixed point currently affects the number format, not the choice of tick positions. It might make sense to allow more presets of tick positions, but that is a different story.

comment pgfplots ticklabel format logarithmic scale
@BenVoigt Yes, it is. I suppose your request is motivated by tex.stackexchange.com/questions/208891/…, right? Let us continue any comments/problem analysis on that link.

comment 3D surface plots in TikZ
Thanks for the update. In fact, file and table are almost the same and both do the job. \addplot3 table is more powerful and allows a huge degree of customization; but its default is actually the same as \addplot3 file.

comment Wrong placement (and/or size) of picture / plot with groupplot of table (… and discontinuity)?
Thanks for the detailed analysis. This is a bug in pgfplots and I will link your elaboration with the bug report.

comment pgfplots legend nested in matrix
The legend is a matrix on its own, and these cannot be nested (a limitation of PGF). You may be able to use legend to name in order to separate the legend from the axis and to draw it at a "suitable" place using the associated \ref command. Details about this approach can be found in the manual; search for legend to name...

comment Make “axis cs” the default coordinate system in a PGFPlots plot
Right. Provided you say \pgfplotsset{compat=1.11}.

comment Creating Tikz Legends in the Caption
The external library allows references to labels in external files -- but not together with the default system call. Do you use windows or unix? Unix users can typically use make to get this without any problems.

Thanks for the note! In this case, I still hope that my answer helps others which search for related keywords.

comment Combining surface plot, explicit colour and legends in pgfplots
I am glad that my answer addresses your needs. Regarding the actual colors: pgfplots cannot use explicit colors of the surface for the legend. Doing so would be a feature request (a very special one as well imho).
