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 Extreme pgfplots — Improve 3d polar plot resolution and prevent “TeX capacity exceeded”
Side note: PGF has a memory leak which causes !TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [save size=100000] for huge mesh/surface plots. I am about to repair it. Workarounds are only to lower the resolution or to use shader=interp.

comment pgfplots import data from table with comma as decimal separator
@DenisBitouzé the feature is available in PGF, but since there has been no PGF release since 3.0.0, it is unavailable on CTAN. I don't know for sure if there is an unstable PGF build which contains it. It is used with \pgfmathprintnumber[read comma as period]{1234,56}

For the records: I have used a slightly modified approach which also keeps empty lines.

comment pgfplots generating incorrect boxplots
Thanks for the question and for the detailed answer/comments. They will make their way into the boxplot handler for the next release. My plan is to add further strategies and probably change the default strategy. I also plan to address performance of the computation, support for nan values, and better support for small sample sizes (the current implementation chokes at 1,2,3).

comment 3D surface plot with axis inside plot
The z ordering of axis lines versus the surface is due to a limitation of pgfplots. Consequently, the solution is the only valid one for the time being. Alternatives would be to use (semi) boxed axis lines instead of centered ones.
