Public bug report changed:

Hi again,

I have an answer from lyx-devel ML, and it seems the problem is really about making LyX templates
associated to TeX classes as I had thought. You can read the dialog below dashed line. I'll try 
to help the LyX side and see how it goes.

 I meant the teTex. But if we have to consider other standards then 
you're right, that might be confusing.

 Yes, but this has been reported as a bug in some Linux distro, which I 
don't agree.

 Could you, or someone, give the directions? I feel like coding and 
would be more than pleased to help.
