@Mechanicalsnail the .m file is the source that is made available for download.

comment Template completion
if this bug is confirmed on MMA9, it would be very annoying for me. I get the template working well for my/standard functions in MMA8. I will get MMA9 later today and we will see.

comment How to manipulate gauge theory in Mathematica?
yes, but this is in version 9, which is not yet available, at the moment. Besides, it seems that the new tensor capabilities do not use index notation, so most physicists will not find them very practical (IMHO)

this is a problem from Coursera, right?

comment What's the difference between these two ways of specifying dependent packages?
@LeonidShifrin I always wondered if he was still actively involved with WRI. Do you know if he still is? I do not remember having seen his name mentioned recently.

comment What's the difference between these two ways of specifying dependent packages?
I agree with you @LeonidShifrin that Maeder's books are still the best in many respects. I only wish they would be updated/expanded to cover the current MMA version. They were written in the 90's and cover versions 2.x and maybe 3.0. Yet they are still very relevant due to the smooth evolution of MMA in the following 20 years.

comment Examples of (well coded) packages using custom notation
@NoEscap WildCats is created with Workbench, but I use the internal MMA editor, so I make a heavily commented/sectioned .nb file. The autogenerated .m file is for deployment only.

comment Creating and editing new stylesheets
@Frink probably. To be honest it is the first time I hear about CloseKernels. As I said, since they are related, they should be cross referenced.

@NoEscape The doc notebooks include 10's of embedded images. If you have any complaint....talk to WRI.

comment Examples of (well coded) packages using custom notation
@Simon has perfectly well expressed my point :-). On the other hand - experimenting with the OP characteristic diplomatic writing style - it might be said that , if one needs comments to understand my code, than perhaps he/she needs to read Wolfram's book and some category theory first. No offense here :-) Anyway...prior releases of WildCats indeed also included the much more friendly .nb file .
