Re: Convert SWORD Project Bibles to Sony LRF Format?

it would be more transparent who the source/custodian is (e.g., as part of the description of the module);

We do make this clear in the .conf files for all but the oldest modules.

the new formats (OSIS, ThML) would be sent back to the source if the source/custodian does not have them;

Most are not interested in this.

the corrected typos/issues would be fed upstream to the custodian;

We don't generally correct anything other than formatting inconsistencies. Half of the typo reports we receive are simply wrong.

The CrossWire would take the role of the custodian for the texts when the original source is no longer available or nonresponsive.

We are a software development group. We don't aspire to be a text repository for anyone other than users of our software.

When sources disappear, we recommend using the Internet Archive.
