This will be a never ending thing, and should never be considered comprehensive.
The aim of this page is to help the memory a little, as time passes, you forget just were you read that snippet of information. This happens all to often in my case and this is part of the attempt to help resolve the problem.
The other part is to add to relevant pages the information as remembered or read.
