What’s the proper bibtex type for ArXiV papers?

I like to use @techreport, like


@techreport{ShakeriBS:16ks_dict,
author = {Z. Shakeri and W.U. Bajwa and A.D. Sarwate},
title = {Minimax Lower Bounds on Dictionary Learning for Tensor Data},
number = {arXiv:1608.02792 [cs.IT]},
month = {August},
year = {2016},
institution = {ArXiV},
url = {http://arxiv.org/abs/1608.02792},
}

but the handy-dandy ArXiv to BibTeX uses @misc (which makes it less handy-dandy, TBH):


@misc{1608.02792,
Author = {Zahra Shakeri and Waheed U. Bajwa and Anand D. Sarwate},
Title = {Minimax Lower Bounds on Dictionary Learning for Tensor Data},
Year = {2016},
Eprint = {arXiv:1608.02792},
}

I’d ask this on the TeX Stack Exchange but it seems more of a matter of taste.

UCI Repository Citation Change

When making an editing pass over a bibliography today, I noticed that the citation for the UC Irvine Machine Learning Repository has changed. It used to be

@misc{Bache+Lichman:2013 ,
author = "A. Asuncion and D.H. Newman",
year = "2007",
title = "{UCI} Machine Learning Repository",
url = "http://archive.ics.uci.edu/ml",
institution = "University of California, Irvine, School of Information and Computer Sciences" }

But now it’s this:

@misc{Bache+Lichman:2013 ,
author = "K. Bache and M. Lichman",
year = "2013",
title = "{UCI} Machine Learning Repository",
url = "http://archive.ics.uci.edu/ml",
institution = "University of California, Irvine, School of Information and Computer Sciences" }

Also, the KDD repository has been merged in with the main repository, so the above is now the citation for both.

Update your BibTeX accordingly! (You too Kunal, but I bet you don’t cite this repo that much).
