Using the glossary.rst page you can create a glossary. The terms can be entered in any order and it will create an alphabetical list. Terms need to be written with a hanging indent from the definition. Consult the Glossary Template for details.
To cite a term in a document that is not the glossary use the following convention:
:term:`term <term as written in Glossary>`
:term:`Size-tiered Compaction Strategy (STCS)<Size-tiered Compaction Strategy>`
Abbreviations and acronyms are defined in-line. The initial letters or abbreviation is first followed by the longer form. For example:
:abbr:`LIFO (last-in, first-out)`.
:abbr:`Overwrite (Same data cells overwritten many times)`
