To contribute, just send stuff to me. As the editor, I reserve judgement that 
some things are not in the scope of DADS. We can talk more about what is and is 
not in scope.

That said, I store entries as tagged files, which are "compiled" into the nice 
HTML pages you see. The "compilation" step updates indexes, changes references 
in HTML anchors (<a href=...>), and other stuff. If folks are really 
interested, it would ease my work if submissions came as these tagged files.

One more note: after handling DADS for over a decade, I am looking for someone 
else to take it over.

I'm Tim Daly, lead developer on Axiom, a computer algebra system.

I've just found the site
and you are listed as the contact.

Axiom has a long-term goal to be a foundation for teaching
computational mathematics. One focus is on explaining the
algorithms and data structures that underlie the implementation
of these fundamental ideas. We have long advocated the
collection and standardization of these algorithms.

I'm happy to see such clear explanations such as your link to

What is the mechanism for contributions?

Tim Daly
