comment What is the width of the standard paragraph indent in LaTeX's article class?
Correct you can also do \the\parindent to print it in a minimal or \showthe\parindent to see it on the terminal

comment LaTeX3 l3msg best practices
The trace class is an interesting idea. Most languages have a logger object. This should be better as a separate module. It can also decongest some of the info currently developers put in the .log file. If only we were not limited on the number of writes.

comment LaTeX3 l3msg best practices
Thanks! In the second bullet messages should be controlled by end user. I guess end user if author the package should have a key such as keepsilent? A simpler approach is to not interface it at all but just set count255 to trigger \batchmode, again via key or command. On the localization I am not sure if the approach or my suggestions for that matter are solving the issues.

@Manuel Thanks. Old habits die hard:) Can't get used to { some } etc easily. Will you edit if you can and fix it a bit.

comment When is it appropriate to use scan marks?
Simplistically I understood it a bit differently. They are both a matter of convenience and convention. \scan_stop: is a \relax. Use quarks when you need to delimit a macro, especially in recursion. \def\z#1\quark{..do something}. Different types are just conventions. Similar to \@nil and \@@.

comment Capitalization in headings - a LaTeX3 approach
\TCTEST{Anno Domini (AD or A.D?)}. Although normally one would have an \AD command or \abbrv command. Thanks for the code, this is great.

comment Capitalization in headings - a LaTeX3 approach
@JosephWright I saw the code in the l3candidates. Interesting, approach. The unicode stuff is not easy. I see expl3 is detecting lua and have some code for it. Is the intention to move some functions over, if Lua is available? Most language relate stuff are better served with a json data structure.

comment Capitalization in headings - a LaTeX3 approach
@JosephWright Aargh! I missed it. The 'sentence case' is not easy as is a hard NLP problem to distinguish betwen abbreviations and end of sentences. Some of the headings in interfaces3 need fixing e.g The 'l3tl package Token lists'.
