This is a bit OT here, but I wanted to share how I kept track of the
progress of my LaTeX PhD in number of pages.
Basically it checks out every git commit, compiles the PDF document,
and logs the number of pages of the resulting PDF. This log-file can
be parsed using «grep» and then you can derive histograms and such.
It has nothing to do with Org-mode but probably someone finds it
useful as well.
