comment Why does TeX not have a proper Content Management System?
I guess what I'm trying to get at is that a) as a package maintainer, you may not want to outsource VCS/issue tracking (if you do; Github), b) as a core maintainer, you may not want to handle bug reports regarding packages you don't maintain and c) as a user, you'd want your bug report to be looked at as opposed to being stuck in an issue tracker which could be the wrong one or not frequented by the maintainer.

But the python.bugs.org tracker is for the core Python interpreter and packages, no? Granted, the core LaTeX packages don't have anything similar, but they're pretty stable and bug-free AFAIK and I feel that it should be the decision of the maintainers anyway.

comment Why does TeX not have a proper Content Management System?
I think there is an intristic value in the decentralized nature of TeX. See e.g. Python pip and Ruby gem (and more); they work in similar ways and this has a clearly positive effect on the community around those languages. That said, I do think it's nice that packages are starting to pop up on Github, because my personal opinion is that a VCS combined with a proper issue tracker is more managable than bug report emails.

I don't see how using TeX Gyre Termes is a "hack".

comment How to draw a multirow table?
FWIW, don't use vertical rules in tables. See page 3 of the booktabs manual.

comment numbering several latex figures
Semantically, subfloats is a better choice. Functionally, I'd say minipages and subfloats are simpler, more flexible and more appropriate.

Use the right tool for the job. In this case, tables aren't it.

comment How to sort the order of pages so that they can be printed in a folded book?
It's not that difficult (you just select "booklet printing"), are you sure they really can't do that?
