We have a large glossary with over 1000 entries. For some of them, the users have entered comments. I'd like to gather all these comments and prepare them for review. Unfortunately there seems to be no way to do this automatically, the comments are not part of the XML export. Is there a possibility to include the comments in the XML export of the glossary?
You cannot export the entry comments by doing a glossary Export entries operation.
The only way to export entry comments to an exernal file is to use the backup operation. Just backup the large glossary (including user data, of course) and then use an xml editor to extract the relevant data from the moodle.xml file inside the course zipped file.
Of course this means you have to know how to extract data from xml and have the necessary software.
