I reckon that it is okay to use plugins that are
in the whiteboard. In fact we need to do that so
that we can find any shortcomings, finalise them,
and get them out of the whiteboard.

We would need to deploy the plugin to the download site.
We already have others, e.g. f.a.o.plugin.input.Daisy

I am going to go ahead and do that, and will be happy
to revert it if people disagree.

Why do we need a Howto? My suggestion was intended
to just create a plain document with a <ul> list
or simple table until we got the "glossary" plugin
working then transfer the content.

Still send it if you think that both are needed.
