comment Small caps font is not enabled with fontspec and MinionPro
@dmakarov I tried your MWE with the TL 2014 luaotfload and it looks fine to me. Both marked regions are in small caps, and the document does use Minion. Can you please post an image demonstrating what is wrong on your setup? Thanks.

comment ConTeXt: How to prevent new paragraph after \hrule in section heading?
Rules don’t cause TeX to enter horizontal mode as text does. Try \setuphead[subsection][style=\tfb, before=\leavevmode\blackrule] (or \dontleavehmode\blackrule). See also wiki.contextgarden.net/…

comment Error PracTeX Jurnal Modules at ConTeXt
For the mkii format, run texexec instead of context. If you want to modify the practex style, just modify the file that you are pointed to: error on line 323 in file C:/context/tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/s-ptj-01.tex: ! Undefined control sequence -- That should be the location.

comment Detecting the local style in a text with ConTeXt
@Aditya Actually the heuristic is even looser, even allowing for something as ridiculous as %foobarmacros=mkvi.

comment Detecting the local style in a text with ConTeXt
@Manuel That’s MkVI syntax. Context has a preprocessor (see luat-mac.lua that is applied if a file begins with the %macros=mkvi directive or its name has the extension .mkvi. The syntax is used extensively all over the Context source. There is not really anything to document since it works as you’d expect it to intuitively: named arguments are placeholders for TeX’s numbered ones.

comment Is there a limit to the size of a tex-file?
In some editors (e.g. Vim) syntax highlighting can be very resource intensive, especially with larger files. Have you tried switching it off? There is probably a configuration setting for the number of lines scanned (Vim: :help minlines); decreasing it should reduce the load too.

comment Error when using luaotfload-tool
Possibly caused by an interfering older version of Luatex. What does luatex --version say? If it’s older than 0.75 then you should update it. Or fix your $PATH.

comment New to ConTeXt, looking for better manual than PRAGMA
The main documentation is on the wiki. If you have trouble with manuals at the Pragma site you are invited to post suggestions for improvement on the mailing list.

comment lualatex: Need help with using different fonts
Neither of the Bravura fonts appears to provide glyphs for ASCII codepoints, that’s why you can’t see any of the basic Latin letters. Also see here for a way to suppress ligatures with Fontspec.

comment Font found with XeLaTeX not found with LuaLaTeX on Linux
This question appears to be off-topic because it is a bug report. The issue was fixed and an update should reach CTAN in the next couple days.

comment How to differentiate glyphs by script (semi-)automatically?
Interesting! Why do you run texlua separately? If you are concerned about reproducibility, you could just store the seed in the document or the .aux file.

comment Learning Plain TeX via ConTeXt's LuaTeX-plain Format
@cfr: Installing the Context distribution alongside Texlive is a common setup and usually works flawlessly.
