I guess you should ask the owner, our distinguished president.

I find Ideographic Description Sequences massively useful for studying and describing Chinese characters. However, I found only one comprehensive source of them — http://macchiato.com/ids/

Does anyone know where the files come from? Were they part of the IRG process, or just an isolated effort? What are the private use characters in the sequences?

I'd like to contribute to the IDS database and incorporate it into products like wiktionary and rikaikun.
