Alex Buckley suggests adding index-like entries into the list of Definitions so that related terms can be grouped together, and to help people find entries by using common terms.

He had originally suggested grouping the entries rather than having one big alphabetical list but I talked him out of that

His original suggested categories were: Roles, Ballots, Artifacts, and Process. Personally I think that all of these except Ballots are too abstract, but we can discuss that.

As for index-style entries, he suggests (as examples, there must be more):

Ballots: see JSR Review Ballot, Early Draft Review Ballot...

Member: see Java Community Process Member

I've added "index" entries for Ballot, Member, and Specification.

Suggestions for others are welcome. I'll leave this issue open until the last minute in the hope that other suggestions will be forthcoming.
