Hey Daniele and others,
I've seen the Re3gistry application for OSGeoLive and I suspect you folk
would also be interested in glossaries?
A bunch of us from OSGeo / OGC / ISO and TheGoodDocsProject have set up a
pilot to tackle challenges around cross-domain management of glossaries.
If you are interested in joining us, then please reach out and say hello.

The project manifesto is here:

Cheers, Cameron

>    - OSGeo-Live is Ubuntu Linux based. Our installation preference is:

>       - Install .deb files from a PPA
>       - Write a custom install script <=
