We have sent them a letter of welcome and a sketchy indication of the way in
which we envisage them authorising new entries.

I'm happy for this to spread out to some degree, and will update the
directory according to the responses as best I can, but I suggest we keep

No rush. The old URLs will of course continue to work into the indefinite
