comment Which packages come standard with Ubuntu's `texlive` package?
The texlive package in Ubuntu is just some fairly arbitrary subset of the real TeX Live. They are not following any "standard"; what this package happens to contain is entirely up to the Ubuntu developers. You can try it out and see if it works for you.

comment Different output from TeX Live 2013 vs. TeX Live 2014
This answer recommends the use of bundledoc package. I tried to use it to solve my problem: create a bundle with TeX Live 2013 and then use it with TeX Live 2014. However, it still seems to change the layout, even though (according to the log file) it is using the old version of the mathdesign package. Am I doing something wrong here, or are these font dimensions something that is not stored in the bundledoc archive?

comment How can I ensure that old documents will compile in the future?
Has anyone got any experience with bundledoc and ArXiv.org? Can I somehow submit a bundledoc archive to ArXiv.org and this way ensure that my document compiles correctly in the future?

@egreg: But precisely what could be the change here? As far as I can see, I am just printing some number of letters "x" using the Bitstream Charter font, and fonts do not change that often in a backwards-incompatible manner.

@AlanMunn: It is the version that came with TL 2013. See, e.g., tug.org/svn/texlive/tags/texlive-2013.1/Master/texmf-dist/tex/…

comment No figures or tables on this page
@MikeRenfro: How can you achieve "no floats on this page" with placeins & \FloatBarrier? To me it seems that placeins only helps to make sure that floats are placed near the point in which they appear in the source code, while I would like to do the opposite (do not put floats on this page even if it is possible)?
