I asked my MS colleague to compopse something and to restrict it
to 3 lines :-). I'd stick by what he put...

Probably not.

I'm working on this. It's a problem. I think the best thing is
for me to add a field to every entry where people can annotate entries.
(see the assignments/comments.html form). Then the curators could revise
entries at regular eintervals. I think it *has* to be on the form.
trouble is, it takes time. I'll try to do something tomorrow.

Yes. There are some entries which need curation. I think I can
find some technical solutions. On the organisational side I think we
have to form some small groups (did I post this already?) for chemistry,
biology, etc to help the curators.
