How updated do you need to be to use that template ( complete dump below but 
got this error ),

Adding this got it to compile, 

But there is no indication it put any useful citation info in the  document in machine readable
form and a human wanting to cite it would need to make bibtex somehow,

I have TeX related projects- BomTex for a "bill of materials" system  derived from a bibliography 
and the TooBib software I keep talking about for discovering possible bibtex sources for a given URL-
but probably can not submit anything meaningful in this timeframe. I was going to download
your template  on the submission info link but was curious if you have a standard way now
to include human and machine readable bibtex info in the PDF files? I had some macro's for
doing that although of course things like source URL are not known ahead of time but that
is where something like TooBib can help edit a bibtex entry. 

In any case, is there a TeX or TuG preferred way to include citation information now?
I like my approach :)

Subject: tugboat articles please

For everyone with TeX projects, or updates, or ideas, they've been
thinking about writing up, now would be an excellent time :). The
deadline for the next TUGboat issue is October 15, though it can slip a
couple days if necessary. We have several excellent (IMHO) articles
submitted already, but more would be very welcome.
