As for helping to keep up with what's "In the works," maybe a
restricted-access wiki of some sort? Or an announcements board? Then you
could have a page with modules, a page for the different front-end
maintainers, and more so that each group can maintain its own page and if
someone wanted to know what modules are being worked on they could look on
the "modules" board and if they wanted to know when the next realease of
BibleCS was going to be availble they could look on the "BibleCS" board or
wiki? And thanks for clarifying the legality of this module!
