1) I love all these additions! For the last one, I would edit it slightly differently: I just see no reason to remove the 'far away.'

2) Thanks for finding these!

1) Agreed to italicize it.

2) Good catches

3) This is a good point, and it makes for a better opening to the subheading. I agree to this movement. The Cirion and Eorl subheading will now begin...

1) I think this is a large issue we need to discuss for the whole of the project. The authorial voice creeps in in the final chapter as well very prominently, and the decision made here affects it....

1) I like this, since you're quite right that the sentence is really long.

2) This is also a good change, well done. I agree with it.

1) Agreed.

2) Agreed

3) I actually do not see the need to move these sections around. I can see wanting to move TE-SL-29 in between TE-SL-03 and 04 to provide an immediate intro to the story,...

1) As Fin will tell you, the project is very much against putting things into a footnote where none exists in Tolkien's draft. We do not need this information; it is not crucial. Therefore the...
