God bless arara.

I'm a TeX systems enthusiast. I don't just push serious authors to use LaTeX, but I advertise the capability of TeX systems for background-process publishing. I'm currently researching for an article on TeX in Industry.

  • Why download the complete TeX distribution? It's so big!
  • I'm on Linux. Why install 'vanilla' TeX Live when my package repositories already contain it?

Believe me, unless you really know what you're doing, it's always simpler to just download the full, vanilla TeX Live from TUG. Space is cheap – your time is not. Don't believe me?

License fuddling

It's come to my attention that all content on this site is automatically under Creative Commons -- a license not terribly useful for LaTeX. Thus, I here relicense all TeX/LaTeX/expl3 code under the LaTeX Project Public License (LPPL), version 1.3c or later. Document-embedded code (i.e. Lua, Python, sh, etc. that is initially processed by TeX) is also licensed under the LPPL v1.3c or later.
