I believe your are talking about the 'construction industry'.
You might also be talking about the 'telecommunications/networking industry'.

What I have heard in both areas is 'punchdown list'.

In the construction industry it is the person that goes in after the
customer has signed for the property, and within 30 days (or similar) timeframe
submits a list of things that need to be fixed to the contractor.

In the telecommunications/networking industry it is the connecting of wires
to a 'punchblock' that is in the 'telephone closet/wire closet'.

Going to Google/AOL search show a majority of the references use
'punchlist', with a smattering of 'punch list' thrown in.

I would suggest picking one "punchlist'. Then in your glossary use both in
the list (punchlist/punch list). In each case, list the definition you
choose, then refer to the other as in 'see also ...'
