comment Russian and Japanese and biblatex oh my
Entirely wrong comment by @LeoLiu. Use babel with xetex as babel-russian is supported by native Russians in contrast to gloss-russian from polyglossia bundle. Use biblatex-gost with biblatex as it is also supported by native Russian librarian.

comment \MakeShortVerb{\§} and \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
I use ifxetex package` and \ifxetex ... \else ... \fi constract for almost all my documents to provide portability between pdflatex and xelatex and sililartly for lualatex. In MWE I just omit this portion of my code.

I have installed ActivePerl but xindy still says C:\Program Files\Far Manager>xindy.exe --help xindy.exe: The script interpreter could not be found. xindy.exe: Data: scriptInterpreter="perl.exe"

comment Guidelines for customizing biblatex styles
@lockstep: please tell where is \addperiod macro defined? I've ran into an error described in tex.stackexchange.com/questions/230616/… but cannot even figure out where \addperiod is defined. It's strange but .dtx files for biblatex are not available on CTAN.

comment Writing Google logo in LaTeX
Never understand why such questions gather lot of likes in tex.stackexchange.com. Wouldn't be easer to use \includegrahics? What is motivation of ignoring \includegrahics?

comment What about \cyrdash in EU1 and EU2 encodings?
Poluglossia in fact fakes \cyrdash using \def. As discussed in tex.stackexchange.com/questions/139748/… it would be more correct to use \DeclareTextCommandDefault.
