Hi Jeff,

but this is the idea of www.svgi.org. Everyone can register and can make 
the modifications themselves.

The out-of-dateness probably results in the fact that www.svgi.org was 
once in beta but later never fully announced, so people did not have the 
need to properly fill in the data.

Once it is announced, I am pretty sure, that the content will be more 

The fact that one needs to register in order to make changes make sense 
in my opinion. Otherwise people could too easily change content of 
competing products.
