Hi Arne,

Thank you very much for sharing the code of your book. It seems very
interesting, I have to take a closer look at it. I want to upload to
GitLab all the code of those two books of my samples, but I need to
rearrange it before, as most of that code is in Spanish :-)

But, broadly speaking, my workflow (especially in these books that are
so long) consists of using Org Publish and compiling everything at the
end with the latexmk script. Each part of the book (chapters, or letters
in the case of the dictionary) are Org documents. And then I have
another Org document which works as a master document (which is the one
I compile in the end with latexmk; the rest of the documents are
exported to * .tex using org-publish, and I automate all that process
through a function in Elisp). I have also another Org document just for
the preamble and my LaTeX code (which is tangled to a tex file), another
document only with the Elisp code involved in the process of the books
(export filters) and, finally, a .setup file. I also add a * .xdy file,
since I use xindy for the index, instead of makeindex. The xdy file is
in Common Lisp, and unfortunately I don't have much knowledge of CL,
but I manage for a few adjustments.

Of course, some Emacs packages are very useful to me too, like the
excellent Org-Ref, Magit or Projectile.

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
