The package documentation? :-)
filename=macros/latex/contrib/fixme/>, just use latex on the fixme.dtx

Just some packages which have not been mentioned before:
For me, jurabib is absolutely priceless -- it provides all the

The KOMA-Skript classes are great especially if you are using A4 paper,

hyperref with the backlinks option is a extremely useful tool to keep
track of all citations in a long text. Together with fixme it is my
most important tool in the "development phase".
