comment LaTeX stopped building a BibTeX bibliography, how to troubleshoot it?
Apologies if this is obvious, but are you actually running BibTeX between LaTeX runs? It looks like your new references are not making it into the .bbl file, which is BibTeX's job.

comment How to combine a timeline with a calendar
You could potentially add an xshift=-10pt or similar in there too, if you want the bottom of the rotated text to line up with the bottom of the "Date: " text.

Does title label anchor={anchor=base west, rotate=90} do what you want?

comment How to combine a timeline with a calendar
center seems to work for me provided the timeline fits on the page. But I'm afraid automatically breaking a plot doesn't appear to be trivial. (You might like to pose this as a separate question, since it's quite a different issue: I will have a go if I get a chance, and no doubt so will others!) However, you can squeeze quite a lot more on one page by setting title label anchor={rotate=90} and decreasing x: e.g., I can fit five weeks happily on an A4 page this way using x=4mm and \scriptsize font.

comment Text-wrapping around image at top of page
Unfortunately this may not be as easy as it seems it should be - see the discussion at tex.stackexchange.com/q/4269/6984 (which is a more general version of the same problem).

comment Cleveref and breqn packages don't play nice together
Fortunately not every environment needs to be dealt with individually. If the environment number is incremented with \refstepcounter then cleveref should work automagically. If not, you can insert the patch of \refstepcounter into whatever command is used instead by hand - see my other answer.

comment Horizontal lines are showing up as low-resolution images
One final note: I believe the distinction between vector and bitmap images in this case is academic - in both cases the instruction is to fill a particular area of the page with a single colour. I.e., despite the publishers' software complaining about low resolution, the lines should look as intended when output at any resolution.

comment Horizontal lines are showing up as low-resolution images
Further to my previous comment: pdfimages reveals that, with the workflow as above but using ps2pdf instead of Acrobat, both fraction bars and horizontal rules are rendered as a 1x1 black image which is stretched to the required size - hence the error with resolution. I'm not sure where in the process this is introduced - the PostScript file is not very friendly to my (relatively inexperienced) eyes. I did notice, however, that when the file is compiled directly with pdflatex the lines are rendered correctly as vectors - would this be an option for you?

Re detecting the results: pdfimages may help - it will extract lines which are rendered as bitmap images for some reason but not vectors.
