I prefer to think of lists and timelines as works in progress. Like unfinished jigsaw puzzles.

For instance, a neutral example, from time to time I have tried to update a list of postage stamps with puppets on them.

I know that the possibilities are strong that I've missed some thing(s), but  the list is the most accurate information I could access for the time being, and with the help of input from others, it can be improved by additional information.

So it is with lists of puppeteers, but the information in Puppetry International is still an accomplishment.

Everything will not fit into one issue. But it is a fine beginning.

I enjoyed the issue but did have problems with the ommissions.  (for
the record I'm 51) Why start then on such a list.  It can only end up
being perceived as hierarchical or elitist.
P of A has done this sort of things at least a couple of times.
Timeline of puppeteers in the 20th C or The Master Puppeteer title.
Doesn't feel good to be left out and its impossible and meaningless to
include everyone and purely subjective and often perceived as
political or crony-istic as to who is chosen.  There are plenty of
themes and projects that don't wander into this quagmire.
