It seems to me that TeXLive should be under the LaTeX heading instead. New users will probably search for the "LaTeX" heading first. Also, LaTeX is more general, and can emcompass GUI applications, etc. --[[User:Arcanazar|Arcanazar]] 13:32, 7 July 2009 (EDT)

:No. TeXLive provides MUCH MUCH more than just LaTeX!

:Ever heard of Plain TeX, ConTeXt, metapost, xindy, bibtex, etc? :)

::Of course I've heard of everything you've mentioned; I'm at a university where these are used all the time. Often, they are referred to as just LaTeX, or LaTeX suite. This may be technically incorrect, but it was the common parlance at my institution. Perhaps it would be best to redirect the LaTeX page to the TeXLive page.

:::What if we had an article for *TeX in general, and have keywords such as LaTeX, ConTeXt, bibTeX, &c. redirect to that page? We could include sections explaining what TeX is and giving some background information to explain all of these different programs (in simple terms so a new user could pick it up quickly). The *TeX article could tell how to install TeXLive, how to use it, some recommended methods of editing .tex files (Vim, emacs + AUCTeX, Kile, &c.), and other information. What do you think?

*Right now there exists: a stub article on LaTex, an article on TexLive, as well as a category TexLive (English) and a Howto: TeXLive and CJK.

I edited the page to try and include texiteasy among the editors, unfortunately I had a certain browser extension[https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cloud-to-butt-plus/apmlngnhgbnjpajelfkmabhkfapgnoai] active (which is not supposed to edit textareas but apparently sometimes does), which modified the name of cloudtex without me realizing. I apologize for this newbie mistake, but I'd like to know if texiteasy was removed for a particular reason, or if it was just because my edit got undone as a whole.
*I propose the creation of a category "TeX (English)" which contains everything TeX-related. This category would be a sub-category of "Office (English)" and all the TeX-related things linked there are moved to the TeX (English).

*All article and categories in english get "Pagename (English)"

*We may make crosslinking field in each of the major TeX articles (LaTeX (English), BibTeX (English) etc.) making it easier to navigate between the topics.

It looks too much like the aforementioned section, with a lot of redundancy. I believe this page should redirect to TeXlive, from where we can add a pointer to [[List of applications#Scientific documents]].

Texiteasy

I edited the page to try and include texiteasy among the editors, unfortunately I had a certain browser extension[1] active (which is not supposed to edit textareas but apparently sometimes does), which modified the name of cloudtex without me realizing. I apologize for this newbie mistake, but I'd like to know if texiteasy was removed for a particular reason, or if it was just because my edit got undone as a whole.

It was not because of texiteasy, feel free to add it back properly.
I'd strongly recommend you to disable this extension for the wiki.archlinux.org domain, or if not possible, to try to live without it. It seems that you can't even use the "Show changes" button to see if it made an inappropriate replacement, because it will probably do the replacement again in the diff.

Move to List of applications#Scientific documents

It looks too much like the aforementioned section, with a lot of redundancy. I believe this page should redirect to TeXlive, from where we can add a pointer to List of applications#Scientific documents. I will do the merge in the next few days if nobody disagrees. -- Ambrevar (talk) 14:22, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
