Not that I am aware of. We started something on the Wiki but that has 
remained in a state of early brainstorming and does not reflect the 
current algorithm details:


I think that from a legal perspective, the algorithm is less relevant 
than the outcome. If, after the change is through, someone can pinpoint 
a case where protected intellectual property of a non-agreer is 
demonstrably still in the database, then it needs to be fixed, no matter 
how good the algorithm was sounding.
