I'm always happy to take suggestions for new terms and to assist in
developing new terms. Also, if people find that the current term
definitions do not meet their requirements, I'd be glad to hear about it
and modify the term if necessary.

One of the problems with the GDSG and Wordlist is that at present, it is
not being updated on the website. The version in CVS is 1.2, the version
on the website is 1.0. If anyone can help us with this, please let us
know. It has been like this for a few months now. It is affecting the
HIG also. Calum posted some information on it: 

I have recently added index tags for each term in the Wordlist, so when
the GDSG is updated on the website, the problem with finding terms will
be fixed.
