FWIW, I have also finished replacement of the offending material in the
Jargon Buster.  The resulting document is eligible for relicensing under
the OPL.

I would love to see a single-source version of this document, provided
that it can be packaged as an RPM for use on non-connected systems.  For
right now that probably means we need to wait for a better (and two-way)
conversion system between the Wiki and CVS for happily combining these
two glossaries.

I am betting that it wouldn't be beyond reason to have a nice Python
utility that could output DocBook to MoinMoin and simply do an HTTP POST
to update the Wiki appropriately.  Hmm...
