comment gitinfo (xstring): tag info does not work because of “tag:” before version number
Thanks for your support! I may well 'steal' this code sometime, though of course, fully attributed either as "cfr from TeX/.SE" or something better if you email me.

comment Replace the text 'Chapter' with custom text in Memoir
Sorry, I disagree that this is a duplicate. OP specifically requests a solution for memoir, while the cited question deals with article.

@wasteofspace Even with brown, it's not a pangram. Either jump has to be in the present tense, or you need more than 1 dog.

@Mico Actually, I don't think it was Windows that added the extensions (it never has for me); the problem is, it conceals them.

Yes, I just downloaded the two files into the same folder, then compiled them with no problems.

FWIW, I have just downloaded the template .tex and the .sty, and (with no alterations) they compile without error (pdflatex, xelatex, and lualatex). Are you able to compile OK before putting your own content into the template? Answering this will help us see whether it's a problem with your content or with your \TeX installation.
