Markus, Kevin,

Yes, I agree we can try to improve this. Perhaps we could just add 
pointers to lists of output models and search/inventory templates in 
the index.xml file? I prefer not to create a big file with 
everything, as we did in the first alias.txt. The idea of this new 
index.xml was to basically just list the conceptual schemas and 
provide pointers where clients could get additional data related to 
each schema.

Best Regards,
