Some time ago I requested a definition of evolution, broadly construed.

What I am looking for is a definition that would encompass all brands of
evolution, including neo-darwinist, materialist, TE, ID, and perhaps

Here is one you might try on for size:

Evolution is a temporal process, taking place over millions of years,
whereby species arise in such a way that later species are correlated to
earlier species.

The definition is intended to describe the evidence with the least amount
of theoretical baggage.

What do you think?
