comment texlive packages to know?
thanks for the pointer to the original question. wasn't easy to locate for me, so this dead question with the link is a good thing.

comment What packages do people load by default in LaTeX?
it's a mystery to me why relsizes are not the default size changing commands. probably historical.

comment Survey or questionnaire document class or package?
looks like a nice package, but is not even on ctan. they probably are not particularly eager to spread the word (package).

comment recommended bibliography handling system in 2015?
the comments pretty much answered it. you can close this as a duplicate. (the nice aspect here is that the duplicate answer remains searchable.) alternatively, I can summarize the above as an answer and mark it answered.

comment lua(la)tex vs pdf(la)tex speed in texlive 2015
in this simple test case, I think both lua*tex and pdf*tex are using the same exact font without tuning and presumably are outputting the same thing (?!). it is simply that lua takes three times as long to create the same output.

comment lua(la)tex vs pdf(la)tex speed in texlive 2015
I looked at ulrike's nice comment, but it did not apply in my situation. however, deleif was right on the money---my own document slowdown was all due to microtype. removing it makes lualatex roughly equally fast. alas, I thought that microtype (introduced for pdftex) was highly recommended for nicer-looking documents and in very wide use. is speeding up microtype on luatex's fix list? (I wonder where JPi is bitten on still seeing a factor 2 slowdown after after removing microtype.)

comment Write to log without wrapping
I don't even think texconfig init is necessary. in my case, just adding the max-print-line in /usr/local/texlive/yyyy/texmf.cnf was sufficient.
