comment Possible incompatibility - LaTeX3 kernel and EbGaramond.sty
Curious! ebgaramond12.fontspec is listed in the eggaramond tlpobj file, but is not in the package tar.xz, nor in the package on CTAN??? How is it created?

@ThomasF.Sturm '...a very annoying false positive...' -- but, I'm sure, not half as annoying as a false negative. :)

comment Marginnotes size
There probably is, but I don't know it. But for when we know, I've added a line to tweak the marginpar.

comment Marginnotes size
Ah! the golden rule would mean a typeblock proportion of 1.612, rather than 1.414 (which is the proportion of the page. But I still think your margins are gpoing to be crowded. You may need to go to something more extreme. For example, my copy of Bringhurst's Elements has a 2:1 typeblock proportion. Oh, and I've just noticed your page size - A5; that's going to cramp your style considerably.

comment Marginnotes size
With that amount of marginpar text, you're going to need a wider marginpar (if, indeed the whole document is like that). In that case, you'll have toreduce the width of the typeblock, and the 1.414... ratio is going to make your textblock (height) very short. I was also a bit mystified by all the length arithmetic; if you could explain the geometry you want, I'm sure we could work out a simpler way to do it. It may also be that instead of marginpars, you would be better off with some kind of parallel text mechanism.

comment git LaTeX and branches workflow
While I'm revisiting this, I would add that although rebasing is a (very) attractive approach, one needs very special care clearly to separate the stuff that will be rebased from the stuff that gets pushed out to a remote repo. Ther is scope for the accident-prone (like me) to shoot themselves in the foot.
