The problem is still that the beta area is not online (which will
hopefully be fixed soon). Without the beta area, we cannot test. Without
testing, we will not release.
If the test of the Biblia Gdanska that we were sent previously had
modified versification, please resubmit with the original versification.
The only alterations to source texts that we want are obvious
corrections of errors (OCR errors, for example).
Sword still uses KJV versification, but we want the import tools to
adjust the versification. This ensures that 1) we can re-import later if
we discover errors in the import tool or when Sword can handle alternate
versifications and 2) the location of any non-KJV verse will always be
the previous valid KJV verse.
The problem with converting the versification system is that verses do
not appear in the correct location to users who are actually familiar
with that translation.
