comment Sorting a list alphabetically by a Macro output
@StevenB.Segletes That's fine +1 :-) (Perhaps use \protected@xdef instead of \xdef?) The sort key would only be needed if the name was a symbol or something involving non-expandable commands, which isn't the case here.

comment Sorting a list alphabetically by a Macro output
@StevenB.Segletes Sorry, I meant that \glsentryname is an existing expandable command, so it works better for sorting (without the font-changing \glsnamefont). Actually, perhaps it would be better to access the sort key for the entry, which would make more sense, but then you'd have to separate out the sort key and the displayed text.

comment Sorting a list alphabetically by a Macro output
\Glossentryname is already defined in glossaries.sty. Why not just use \glsentryname (which is expandable) instead?

comment Sorting a list alphabetically by a Macro output
No, only the \glsentry*fieldname* commands. (Not the case changing variants like \Glsentryname or \glsentrytitlecase, just the ones like \glsentryname or \glsentrytext.)

comment Sorting a list alphabetically by a Macro output
\glossentryname isn't expandable, so it's going to be hard to sort \glossentryname{MVARglossary}.

comment Warn if text item should be a glossary entry
@Draken That would be useful :-)

comment Warn if text item should be a glossary entry
Unfortunately I think this isn't possible or too complex for TeX. It needs some kind of markup. A better approach might be to write a script to parse the .tex file. It's similar to the problem in automated indexing against keyword file

There's also the person package that comes with datatool.

comment Put heading “LIST OF FIGURE (Continued)” to 2nd, 3rd, … page of LOF
That's still just a fragment of code. Please include a minimal working example (MWE) that includes whatever package you're using to generate the continued captions.

comment Introduction for glossary with glossaries package
Not so weird if you consider the meaning of the word preamble "a preliminary or preparatory statement; an introduction" :-)

comment Makeglossaries can't find perl
If you're really stuck you can use the Lua alternative instead. Try replacing the call to makeglossaries.exe with makeglossaries-lite.lua. Although it would be better to get the Perl interpreter working as there are quite a few useful TeX-related Perl scripts.

comment Is it possible to automatically add an index entry each time an acronym/glossaries command is used in the document?
I agree. I've voted to reopen since the other question is specifically about the acronym package whereas this one is specifically about glossaries.

comment Introduction for glossary with glossaries package
You can redefine \glossarypreamble before \printglossaries. This will affect all glossaries. For an individual glossary you can do, for example, \setglossarypreamble[acronym]{preamble text here}.

comment Is there a repository of known bugs and/or list of changes for packages on CTAN?
Good idea mentioning the annual TL freeze. I'd forgotten about that. :-)
