Hey Steve, and all the list,

thanks for your message.

The signmaker: it seems it is not part of your 
swis-server that you provide on github, but on above mentioned website I 
see, that it is GPL3 licensed. Can I get it somehow? if there is the 
need for a little coding and adjusting to our system, that is no problem.

When doing our annotations in public signpuddle (annotating our glosses 
to signwriting), we need a way to link back the signpuddle entries to 
our video database. we would use ids to give that information. probably 
that was the reason, why the entries got removed. We denoted the id in 
the "text" field. now we shifted to adding the id to the source field. 
then it is not displayed too big and hopefully doesn't annoy anybody.

What do you think? Is that ok?
