Topic Tags for the LaTeX Community Forum PDF Print E-mail
News - LaTeX Community
Written by Stefan Kottwitz   
Friday, 01 March 2013 13:45

As announced today, topic tagging has been implemented for the LaTeX Community forum.

A tag is a keyword which classifies a topic. Using tags, topics are categorized by subject, which makes browsing easier and helps to look-up topics. Carefully selected tags are a great addition to full text search - a human made index is better than machine searching. Besides the broad forum categories (subforums), you could then filter for tags such as TikZ, Koma-Script, BibTeX, editor names, package names, and more.

The TeX Live net installer is a great tool. However, with a slow Internet connection it may be daunting. Think of multiple installations in a company, or imagine several users at a TeX conference or another meeting would like to install TeX Live concurrently using the meeting's internet connection.

Possible solutions would be distributing DVDs or USB sticks with a possibly slightly outdated version, using a cache such as a proxy server, or setting up a local mirror repository. Now there's another way.
