[sword-devel] Chinese Beta Modules

If you would, contact email@example.com directly. The gentleman's name is
Hapiru (I have no idea if this is first or last) who returned my email
which basically says that anything on their web site is designed so
anyone is welcome to publish as freeware.
I wonder if we can get a blanket statement as such or get one signed for
each module made.
I need to download your attachment later since I'm in a city library now.
Also I don't know if this is relevant: I have renamed it to ChiUn as Chris
had suggested next time I upload update.
