What do you think about putting up the thesis template somehwere on the
wiki? Perhaps in the examples section?

I have had a thorough look at the Wiki, though I'm reluctant to hand
over the template to a public 'arena' which can be crawled by search

That part we can easily fix by password protecting the relevant page -
it'll take care of the search engines. As for giving people the password,
we can either simply write it on a (another) wiki page, or tell people to
ask the user's list for it.

True. I guess that would solve the issue.

The template, due to its nature as a template, contains some base text
with a thesis-to-be (I can expose it in private though).

Um, I'm afraid I don't follow you here.. do you mean it has an abstract,
an introduction etc? (And why would this matter?)

At present, I have all the text within. It is work in progress. If I
strip off too much, then labels, indices, floats, equations and the like
will go away though I would like to keep them as examples. I sent out
the LyX file to somebody this morning. He contacted me off-list.

It also contains many comments which are messy and potentially
embarrassing. Comments are a power of LaTeX, but the also make LaTeX a
little too exposing to be openly shared.

Ok, now I'm confused (again:-)  why do you say LaTeX? I thought it was a
LyX template? Anyway, is it a lot of work removing the comments?

Sorry... that was a badly-phrased explanation. I export from LyX to
LaTeX at the end and despite the conversion, I have all the
comments in tact. That's why I don't leave the tex files on the Web
server. Crawlers try to pick them up.

I put a note about the lyx files at:

I don't mind sending them by E-mail/FTP to anybody who requests them.
Maybe you can disclose my E-mail address in the Wiki...
