comment How to upload LaTeX-generated pdf paper to arXiv without LaTexXsources
@JoshuaGrochow Simple: remove all comments before uploading. You can do that with a straightforward script - assuming you haven't changed the catcode of %. After all, comments don't affect the output so it is completely safe to remove them. (To forestall nitpickers: the script should do s/%.*/%/gm if I have my modifiers right.)

comment Print A6 book on A4 double-sided in correct order
@cfr That would be a big help. I mean no disrespect to the CTAN team - I know they are all volunteers. But it just takes me so long to figure it out each time, and I always get something wrong and end up feeling bad that I've created extra work for the team. So something that meant I could know that it was right would be fantastic.

comment Print A6 book on A4 double-sided in correct order
@cfr Unfortunately, as I only upload to CTAN infrequently, I have to relearn all of the intricacies every time and I just don't have the space in my days for that any more. I'll quite happily separate it out from the tex-sx package and put it on github, but that's as far as I can reasonably get for the moment.

comment Easy curves in TikZ
That's right. It's a bit buried in the comments on the original question, but there was a later question on Hobby's algorithm which gives a better solution. See tex.stackexchange.com/questions/54771/…

comment Easy curves in TikZ
bend is fine for two points, but it isn't all that helpful for when you have a list of more points that you want the curve to go through.

comment Print A6 book on A4 double-sided in correct order
@babuntu The difficulty is that it works for me with a PDF that I have, and I don't have the PDF that you are trying with, so I can't test it for you. Try with another PDF and see if it works with that.

@babuntu I just tried it with \includepdf and it works for me.

comment Print A6 book on A4 double-sided in correct order
@babuntu It would be simple enough to swap the pages. I presume you mean that the two printed pages should be swapped. I haven't tried it with \includepdf but I know of no reason why it shouldn't work.

comment Striking out matrix lines and columns: is Tikz the only way?
In tex.stackexchange.com/a/26909/86 I wrote some code that replaced AMS matrices with TikZ matrices without changing their use. I don't know if it still works ...

comment exporting graphics from geogebra
The second drawing command is \fill. Try changing that to \draw.

revised Speed up beamer compile time
Most people use beamer frame as an environment so the added code was not helpful.

comment Expandable (quick) sort array macro?
Just a quick note to say that for your example you don't need expandability. You could define a quick sort algorithm which added to a token list as it went along. Then you would invoke it as \quicksort\oldlist\newlist and \newlist would contain the sorted items.

comment drawing patterns based on prime factorization
Superb. Beautiful example of using Lua to do the heavy lifting and TeX to do the beautification.

comment drawing patterns based on prime factorization
I saw this and thought "I must remember that when I teach about factorisation", closely followed by "I hope that someone figures out how to do it so that I can steal^H^H^H^H^Huse their code."
