Can I suggest additional tools to be added to the toolkit?
Absolutely, yes. If you have any additional tools, which you feel would be good to add please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will certainly consider them for a future version of the toolkit. For any new tools to be added though, they would need to add extra value over and above our existing tools.
