Actually its a rather standard even almost common definition and use of
the word digest (to arrange methodically etc).
It doesn't distribute or arrange them methodically -- it slaps one on
the end of the previous.
Besides, we're talking nouns, not verbs here.
The noun definitions follow this sense:
1 : a summation or condensation of a body of information: as a : a
systematic compilation of legal rules, statutes, or decisions b : a
periodical devoted to condensed versions of previously published articles
...and digests are neither summations nor condensations.
