[isabelle-dev] Towards the next release

Dear all,

in preparation for the next release I refactored one of our AFP entries 
(Abstract-Rewriting). There was an underlying theory Util.thy (quite 
big), which essentially turned out to be unused in the rest of the AFP 
entry ;) (but we heavily rely on it in IsaFoR, which is not in the AFP).

While refactoring I saw that some lemmas from Util.thy have found their 
way (either by moving or independently) into the main Isabelle 
distribution (mostly List.thy) -- but without being removed from the AFP 

Still there are many definitions and lemmas left that are not part of 
the main distribution (some of which are ugly and ad hoc, but others 
quite useful and maybe deserving to end up in the distribution or library).

After this rather long story ;) my actual question: Is there some way to 
propose definitions/lemmas for the main distribution/library? If not, 
maybe someone of the developers feels like reading through the attached 
theory-file and picking out whatever he/she likes?
