 > I think such as list is very useful, but the result is still quite
 unsatisfactory at this point. E.g.
 > * database only links to v.db.* modules, none of the db.* modules[[BR]]

 As written, the current mechanism is based on the second keyword. Each
 topic corresponds to this. The db.* have: "attribute table" there, while
 the v.db.* have "database". It is a trivial change to reorder this, just
 some agreement is needed first.

 > * imagery only lists r.in.aster[[BR]]

 Fixed in r , now it results in "Import".

 > * raster links to a series of diverse modules, none of them r.*[[BR]]

 Right, all have the wrong second keyword. Working on it.

 > * interpolation only links to t.rast.gapfill[[BR]]

 The others under "surface". This requires some more discussion how to
 classify them.

 keywords. But IMHO, as much as I like the idea, I'm afraid that in its
 current state this list might be counterproductive for new users. I
 definitely would not recommend my students to use it right now when trying
 to find modules by topics.

 Ok, it exists for a few days only - tell them to wait a week :-)
