How to contribute to this book

As a copylefted work, this book is open to revisions and expansions by any interested parties. The only 'catch' is that credit must be given where credit is due. This is a copyrighted work: it is not in the public domain!

If you wish to cite portions of this book in a work of your own, you must follow the same guidelines as for any other GDL copyrighted work.


All entries have been arranged in alphabetical order of surname, hopefully. Major contributions are listed by individual name with some detail on the nature of the contribution(s), date, contact info, etc. Minor contributions (typo corrections, etc.) are listed by name only for reasons of brevity. Please understand that when I classify a contribution as 'minor,' it is in no way inferior to the effort or value of a 'major' contribution, just smaller in the sense of less text changed. Any and all contributions are gratefully accepted. I am indebted to all those who have given freely of their own knowledge, time, and resources to make this a better book!
