I suppose this is really my fault rather than Alan's -- I think the data is
essentially there, it's just that I've been following the example of the
Pilling book by not mentioning the author's name with RSCDS dances. (Which is
silly really, as a big part of the justification for this service is that
Pilling does NOT give ANY source for all the dances in the book that are not
by either RSCDS, Drewry, Cosh or Foss.) Also, many of the RSCDS dances are
nominally from old dance books and/or the living tradition with no deviser
known.

I'll look into changing this but as I'm in the process of moving house (a
terrible experience; don't do it) I don't have a time frame yet.
