This is the way things are I guess, people are here to contribute code,
That means usually most committers commit their time and find their
Time to produce and commit their code, only natural and understandable.
Everyone else comes second.

Especially when patches don't validate etc, I have made sure as much as
Possible that my patches are fully tested, fully validate etc to shorten
The time a committer needs, but I slip up now and then :)

No problem, thanks.

Ok, just that they were already there and just wanted to correct and make
Sure my correction was good . (keh!?)

Ok ,thanks. 

For cite to work, we need the citations plugin, so we know that
The Glossary Plugin relies on Citations Plugin if we use cite. But how
dependent is Citations on the Glossary, I mean, how useful is Citations
Plugin without Glossary anyway ? We would have to broaden the horizon
And alter a document-vxx.mod schema to add cite perhaps to make it available
forrest-wide. Otherwise, citations is also dependent on glossary.

If the latter, then is it viable that the two plugins are bundled, or we
Make sure that one plugin installs the other also.
