I am a postdoc in philosophy.

I contribute to a blog for philosophers who use LaTeX. If you fall in to that niche, check it out: PhilTeX. (The blog will be of use to all kind of humanities scholars using LaTeX, I imagine, but it was started by, and is run by philosophers...) The blog is currently defunct, but may be resurrected soon.

I made this beamer colour change package that slowly changes the colour of structure elements of beamer presentations. Feedback welcome. I also made this moreenum package which adds new enumeration options. The TeX goodies page of my website includes some other bits and bobs I've done.

comment What are the benefits of vanilla texlive over texlive provided by Ubuntu repository?
@norbert It might be useful to add an answer giving these reasons for preferring the ubuntu versions. Just so both sides of the story are represented.

comment Useful shortcuts or key bindings or predefined commands for emacs+AUCTeX
@doctorate \includegraphics isn't an environment. So it's not surprising it doesn't show up. C-c C-e figure gets you a figure environment. I guess you could use C-c C-m to get you includegraphics but it hardly seems worth it, in terms of the time it saves you.

comment TeX capacity exceeded with listings package
Perhaps emphasise that the difference between the working and non-working examples is in the brackets/braces of the documentclass call. It's not that obvious...

comment Is it ok to use vbox instead of figure for floating elements?
"Is it OK" is a bit vague. What do you mean? Is it possible? yes. Is it good practice? Perhaps not.

It isn't really clear what you are asking. What would an adequate answer to this question involve?

comment How to automatically include several text documents into a LaTeX document?
Wouldn't yyyymmdd be better since that would at least order your files sensibly?

comment Tracking changes
Doing this manually will quickly become a nightmare. I suggest you look into learning how to use a version control system like git or mercurial and then find a way to use latexdiff or similar.
