Hi George: That is something along the lines of what I was looking for. One problem with my current effort is the length of time for me to become sufficiently familiar with alternate threads as I called them to be able to fairly represent them in a FAQ .
My suggestion is that we cooperate as the first two to participate. I can work on mine and you on yours. We compare efforts until we are satisfied that our respective contributions meet some minimal useful standard. We then mutually post the combined result to our web sites. In the meantime I am going to continue work on the list of acronyms etc in my current effort.
