Conversion system is nowhere mentioned on the idea page.

At this point, there is no implementation for the astronomical coordinate
system available. It has to be implemented from scratch. But there are
conversions available for euclidian system thanks to boost.geometry. So
when you integrate units in the existing coordinate system basic
conversions will be available automatically.

You should choose whatever you are more comfortable with. If you think you
can work fast and are able to complete things early then you can include a
section in your proposal like "if I finish early" where you can include
secondary ideas. This way you can have all the ideas in your proposal but
still, the proposal will have a good estimate of work.

I had checked before submitting the final proposal that it is editable.

Thank you,
