Subject: Creating a DocBook glossary in a distributed documentation production environment

This is half a DocBook question and half a "process" question for
anyone on this list working in a distributed DocBook production
environment where for a particular assembled document you are
generating at least one common glossary. (In this case, the assembled
document is planned as a set with two books, multiple chapters within
each book, and sections within each chapter.) Authors will be working
on chapters and sections independently of one another.

I am trying to figure out the logistics of having authors generate
glossterms/glossentries that are unique and consistently-formed and
contribute to a common glossary. It may well be that this isn't
possible, or that it is best done as a sort of kludge, where they mark
up glossterms and then submit the full glossary entries in a separate
document, for editors to manually integrate this content into a main
glossary after human review. Either that, or authors ignore glossary
creation altogether and the next tier of editors is responsible for
glossary creation.

I have read through the instructions for glossary databases in
Stayton's guide, thought about manual vs. automated creation, etc. but
am still stuck at the "process" level of all this.
