Unfortunately, I am also unable to get Indonesian Text. All my effort
contacting and negotiating with the copyright owner does not produce
any result.

So I decided to translate it myself :)
But it will be very long project > 5-10 years to finish. I guess on
average I will be able to output 1-2 verses/day, not event 1
chapter/day :(
One day I hope I will be able to finished it (5-10 years down the
road), if ever finish. My major obstacle will be laziness, bored,
busy, etc.

Now I am currently setting up svn, finding information regarding OSIS
requirement (naming, formating, tagging), etc, I never write any OSIS

Side note: what are the editors did you use for editing/creating OSIS
bible text (linux preferred) ?
