comment Is it sensible to use the apa6 class for a thesis (with chapters)?
@alfC The apastyle blog talks about headings and one of the comments says "The APA Style manual does not now, nor has it in the past, provided in-depth guidelines on the formatting of dissertations. The 5th ed. (chapter 6, pp. 321–327) discussed how the needs of dissertations are different than those of draft manuscripts for publication---namely that one size does not fit all"

@Sigur I am pretty sure fonts are not the same as packages and classes in that you need to run updmap after adding things to texmf-local.

@Sigur Had I installed TeXLive with the system package manager, I could just create a deb file. Since I went with a local install of TeXLive, which means TeXlive is installed in /usr/local, it is bad form for a deb package to install or modify anything in /usr/local.
