comment How to eat / gobble only whitespace or (implicit) \par?
@DavidCarlisle Yes, what is the code that does this and how does it work?

Thanks! I thought of that but didn't dare to try as this really is neither… I will give \@startsection a try whenever I have time.

comment PDF/X in pdflatex with memoir, new xcomply package
This is good news, the existing packages never worked for me either. You do not need to be a developer to use Github, you can setup free repositories as long as they are public (but so is your website).

comment Where can I put biblatex style modifications?
I am not sure (and didn't test), but BibLaTeX sits in the /latex/ folder, and that is why we usually put everything in there… I am not sure whether it would find it in another folder. Besides, using the same folder tree as for BibLaTeX makes it easier to find. If you try another folder, please let me know.

comment Deleted author names if repeated
The solution would be the same, simply without adding a dash (although I do not recommend it and I have never seen it in French books — no dash usually means "no author, this is a collection" whereas a dash means "same author"). I will try to find it back for you sometime. I have a whole biblatex style for french law but it may still need some improvements, hence my question. There is also a class called droit-fr for PhDs but I am not sure whether it is still actually maintained.

The solution is to redefine the author macro to check whether the fullhash of the previous author in the bibliography is the same, and if so to insert a dash. I will try to look at my code when time allows unless someone else writes up a working answer before. — By the way, from your citations, are you working on french law? Could you contact me (my username at gmail).

comment Is this sacrificial command a good idea?
Are you sure the command will only be used once? For instance \title can be redefined midway, and I sometimes do it for serial documents if the class I use allows for multiple \maketitle. If not (and I think not), I would support the Idea of going for \setname to define \name.

comment Combine different types of cite commands using packages cite and multibib (Update April 28th)
Could you please give us a MWE? If your citations can be sorted out automatically (different bibtype or keywords, etc.) it would be a lot easier to create the proper macros. If not, then the solution is more complex.

comment Contextual mix of lining and old-style numbers
I will try. Admittedly, I did not try again with each and every later version of EB Garamond, which is still evolving quite lot (contrary to Junicode, which is pretty much stable). — One difficulty not mentioned in the original post, the font needs to have proper kerning for French (most fonts have apostrophes set for English, and French requires more kerning because the apostrophe separates words instead of marking elision).

comment Contextual mix of lining and old-style numbers
@Ludenticus Small-caps are not probably encoded properly, they come out as private use characters on copy-pasting. Except in my language, we write all last names in small caps, so copy-pasting any academic article quickly becomes a nightmare.

comment Contextual mix of lining and old-style numbers
@Ludenticus Eb Garamond was my first choice of font, but it was not very XeLaTeX compatible (impossible to copy-paste your final output and still be able to read it). I will have to give it another try if the author/adapter solves this issue. Additionally, I had some unresolved issues concerning guillemets with the author (they are far too large for non-historical texts, but he did not want to create an OTF variant).
