OK. In our deliverable we could start by giving pointers to general registries and search engines, and then say that among the potential results of such tools, some can be seen as especially relevant, since they're related to our cases. And that the rest of the deliverable at hand provides a quick guide into these.

How does that sound?

I think we're in line on the goals, and the issue :-)
We'll see if we can come with something. Meanwhile, any idea or pointers to ideas is welcome!
