Same 'gloss' , many 'signs'...

I've noticed in looking through the signs in Sign Puddle that there are
many signs which have the same gloss, but are represented in different
ways. Looking at the ASL dictionary, for example, the gloss 'about' is
associated with 5 different SignWriting images. What is the origin of
these different versions? Do they represent different dialects, or are
they simply a matter of personal choice? I would appreciate any insight
which you anyone could give. Thanks!
