	There's no such thing as PorAA, not that I know of.  And
what's being called PorAA by the Unbound Bible guys is really the
Versão Revisada (de acordo com os melhores textos em Grego e Hebraico)
da tradução de João Ferreira de Almeira, under copyright of the JUERP,
JUnta de Educação Religiosa e Publicações da Convenção Batista
Brasileira, under the imprint of the Imprensa Bíblica Brasileira.  I
don't have my copy here now, but I think it's (c) 1967, and that's
what they claim at http://juerp.org.br./index.php?oid=1&cid=19.  I
have no reason to doubt this version's copy rights are still valid,
even if I don't know details of the Brazilian law.  I can dig them up
if you think it useful at all.

	Yes, I corrected everything I found to be bad -- orthography,
bad verse endings, truncated text.  I probably should dig up an old
copy of the Revisada I got from one of the JUERP's licensees a long
time ago, but due to being looking for a job I really can't right now.

	Please do... I had hoped you had did already and was just
waiting for something server-side to happen.

> And does your email to JUERP have a bearing on this?

	Yes and no.  If they don't allow us to publish the Revisada, I
guess we'd need to yank PorAA; if they do allow us, I guess we should
rename and insert all the copy right notices etc; if they ignore us, I
guess we should publish my corrections as soon as possible while I bug
them by email, mail or phone.

	You're more than welcome!  Just please make good use of it...
