comment Importing plots from MATLAB to LaTeX
Tip: use width= option instead of scale when importing graphics. This scales graphics to desired sizes. Eg, \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{graph2.eps}.

comment How do I get bibtexU working?
Thank you, @JosephWright. This is also my opinion. Just, I was contacted by a user of my package GOST who wrote that it fails with bibtexu. By the way, bibtexu is excluded from MikTeX. Isn't worth to exclude it also from TL?

comment Installation/usage of latexdiff on Windows 7
I did not manage to have latexdiff running on my computer with MikTeX 64bit. I carefully perform all steps described in techshangrila.blogspot.sg/2013/10/… but still have the error message latexdiff.exe: The Perl interpreter could not be found. What should I do?

comment Which packages that apply fixes should one load by default?
@marczellm: I put \RequirePackage{fixltx2e} before \documentclass{revtex} in order to compile my doucment with xelatex or lualatex since otherwise revtex class conflicts with those new engines.

comment Does writing LaTeX packages need moderation?
@StevenB.Segletes: moderation can be set in a form of recommendations for authors of new packages, eg: (1) Search CTAN for similar packages; (2) investigate those packages; (3) contact autours of those package and ask them to upgrade their packages; (4) upload your packages if eigther of the steps 1-3 fail.
