+ Created: 26 June 2013
+
+ Last Modified: 26 June 2013
+ Version: 1
+
+This document tries to define many of the terms used in the Synopsis. It does
+not have an Apocalypse or Exegesis predecessor. It is intended as both a
+quick introduction to terms used on the #perl6 channel (on freenode), as well
+as a more permanent, and deeper source of explanations in the context of Perl6.
+
+If you, as a reader, miss a term in a glossary, just add the term with the
+explanation. Or if you are not sure what the missing term means, just add a
+header for the term. Without doubt, someone else more knowledgable will add
+the explanation later for you and everybody else.
