	I've added your contributed locale as the first official locale in SVN! 
  Thank you!  It can be seen from:

	Yes, we've done some things.  We have 2 security limits which we have 

1) a maximum number of sessions from a single IP addresss;
2) a maximum number of hits per second from the same session.

	These will hopefully protect against webcrawlers opening thousands of 
sessions, and also people attempting to scrape the data for an entire 
Bibles from your site.  This will hopefully limit the number of 
processes spawned by swordweb.  The root of the problem you are probably 
running up against is that the user account running tomcat probably has 
a security setting which places a quota on the maximum number of 
processes it can run simultaneously.  Currently there is 1 orb spawned 
as a process to handle each web session.

	The next step we should take is to close inactive orb servers after a 
short timeout of inactivity-- like 10 seconds.  This will greatly limit 
the number of processes running concurrently and should not noticeably 
change the user experience.

	So, to sum up.  We've made 2 good improvements which you might benefit 
from already.  I'll try to get to this last improvement sometime this week.

	There have been some fairly significant changes in SVN over the past 3 
weeks, so you might need to upgrade things like clucene if you update 
your site.

	Well, we have one pressing need on swordweb which you might be able to 
help with.  It's listed on the new wiki at:


	If you feel like helping out, we could definitely use it!

	Again, thanks for the i18n!  Very cool!
