Thanks Steve for the links.
Thanks Susan and Nick for the great input.


I will keep in mind the suggestions for now:
 - annotate which terms are for OSM, HOT, and Activation in
parentheses at the end of each entry
 - search LearnOSM for other terms
 - also search Tasking Manager for other terms that should be included

other glossary for reference:
[OSM wiki glossary] http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Glossary
[1] http://www.opengeospatial.org/ogc/glossary
[2] http://wiki.gis.com/wiki/index.php/GIS_Glossary
