comment Polyglossia vs Babel
New versions for welsh, spanish and vietnamese for babel are on the way, and they will be available very likely in a few weeks. In the near future (I'm working very actively) I presume babel 3.10 will be out (I hope before Christmas, but one never knows).

comment Misalignment chapter titles with hang option of titlesec package and redefined \cleardoublepage
This is the correct answer! And in fact all you need to fix the problem -- \centering is in force until the current group finishes or until another alignment is set.

comment LuaLaTeX: How to use a \char directive inside a string.gsub function?
@Mico Well, another suggestion - what about modifying directly the font table? It's a lot easier with a tex font than with an otf, however.

I wonder if a better approach for you problem is a feature file, as explained here: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/142605/…

Or alternatively, load babel with option noconfigs.

comment ZWJ in LuaTeX prints a bar
@salimbou Some fonts convert the presentation forms to the isolated ones. Anyway, the problem here is not getting the medial form, but the glyph shown by the ZWJ.

comment datetime causes incorrect date format even when babel is loaded first
Clearly, the date for welsh was originally copypasted from breton.

comment Availability of LaTeX packages' functionality in ConTeXt, XeTeX, and LuaTeX
Currently I'm using Lua(La)TeX on a regular basis and I've had no problems (well, no more than usual). I've found Xe(La)TeX more limited when dealing with PDF internals (LuaTeX is based on pdftex). I've even converted with very little effort old LaTeX document to LuaLaTeX.

@GonzaloMedina Fair point.

comment How to adjust the size and placement of chapter heading in report class
But also points out there is no way to catch the original \chapter and therefore one similar to standard classes is used (ie, not necessarily the same). On the first page, the manual also says "Since the sectioning commands are rewritten, their behaviour could be somewhat different in some cases". This also imposes some other restrictions when redefining \chapter (as explained in the manual, which could require using \titleclass). Vertical spacing could be slightly different from standard classes because titlesec adds a couple of struts in titles.

comment How to use luacode* to eliminate need to escape “\”?
@Nasser I think new lines are more a problem with luacode* than luatex itself, but to be honest I haven't investigated.

comment babel/plain.def : ! Illegal parameter number in definition of \@yargdef
plain.def is a component of babel and it is not intended to be loaded separately. No provision has been made for it to work in other contexts. Anyway, I'll have a look at it.
