comment In what directory should I store my new LaTeX template?
@dbliss if all this talk of distributions and mktexlsr is confusing to you, go with cfr's "manual option", and use your TEXMFHOME.

comment In what directory should I store my new LaTeX template?
@cfr: What I meant was, each TeX distribution has a local system-wide texmf. Isn't that true? For instance, with texlive it's /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/.

comment How can I get a better pound symbol (number sign, hash character) “#”?
I believe a hashtag refers to this symbol plus an alphanumeric string. The symbol alone is a hash character. I prefer octothorpe.

@OLSAY: That's a question to ask the MathJax folks.

comment How to get part name in LaTeX ?
@juanuni: The book class might have a different implementation of \part. My patching of auxiliary macros was specific to how report did it.

comment How do I modify the placement of the prime symbol?
Ah, no I didn't forget; I've never known that syntax! I had trouble finding it in mathspec's documentation, too. But there it is, in the code comments: put the " before a character, e.g $􏰐"f$􏰐, and the character is printed with kerns on either side.

comment What to put into the dtx file?
One file you cannot put into a .dtx file is a Makefile. Docstrip strips tab characters which are necessary for make's syntax. There are workarounds requiring post-docstrip processing of the generated Makefile, but I'm not sure it's worth the trouble.

Christian notes that it's not as simple as that for an every quiver plot key. See the SourceForge ticket.

comment TikZ: Node position in draw environment
Welcome to TeX.SX! Next time, please make your MWE compilable so that answerers don't have to add this text to test.

comment Clipping only the bottom of a graph in pgfplots/tikz?
I already did: Take your code, search for clip=false, and replace with clip mode=individual. I normally would post a complete compilable document but since I only changed 10 characters it seemed like overkill. Here it is as a gist

comment How to insert a dashed line over a bigwedge symbol so that the dashed line behaves like overline would?
Well now you have the opposite problem. The dollar signs put it into inline mode! So you could use \mathchoice or find a way to not use a specific math mode.

comment How to insert a dashed line over a bigwedge symbol so that the dashed line behaves like overline would?
As for #1, your \preclosure macro has \displaystyle in it. That is how it ends up bigger.

comment Is there any advantage in keeping track of aux bbl blg files in a git repository
Good link. pgfplots also adds some temp files that might make good additions to that ignore file.

comment Beamer: always overlay first item on same frame
Next time please include an entire document (starting with \documentclass and ending with \end{document} as your MWE. Makes it easier for answerers who otherwise have to type that text themselves.

comment Beamer: always overlay first item on same frame
@Andrea: glad it helped you. The Only parameter is just dummy text for a frame title. Put whatever you want (or nothing) there.

comment Label four equations on one line
I presume that an advantage of indexing your variables is that you don't have to refer to (what you are calling) equation 10 or 11 separately. So although this is an interesting problem I feel like it doesn't contribute to better math writing. Why not just let it be labeled (10) and write “If we plug equations [note plural] (10) into (9), we get ...”

comment Storing an array of strings in a command
What would you like \getdata[4] to do? With this implementation it fails silently.

comment How to plot hyperbola giving the foci and the fixed differene distance using TikZ
Good answer. Just a note from the math police: I can't tell for sure but it looks like you're referring to the separate branches of the hyperbola as "parabolas". They should just be called branches.
