Doug, That is great that you are doing these checks!
About the decimal expansions: Yes, ideally the OEIS entry should
be a prefix of the infinite expansion. Unfortunately it is
almost impossible to police this, so in practice I allow both versions.
Constants from physics, for instance, would always have the last digit
In case of ties, round towards zero. Round(-1/2) = 0, round(3/2) = 1.
You are a member of the sequence fans list, right? So you
will know that we are slowly moving towards a Wiki format
for the OEIS.
