I agree.  Case and point:  where is info about HID on the princeton site?  Not there!  (except examples).  I think it might be in the PDF, but not the web doc - at least not anywhere I’ve been able to find. 

I’m teaching a class with chuck next year, so this resource will be much needed…  I’m happy to help out in any way I can…

PS:  If the FLOSS manual is meant to be the all-in-one resource, I wonder about including the Chunity stuff??

There are plenty of places on the internet where you can find bits and bops, but none is really comprehensive (some are outdated, some just incomplete, and so on).
