These annotation pages are maintained and edited by Eli Bishop, who wrote about two-thirds of the text. Other contributors are listed on the contributors page and are identified in the text by their initials.
The site is updated whenever I get a chance; items that were newly added or revised in the last update are marked with a red sidebar (this may not be visible, depending on your software).
