[sword-devel] Maintaining Module Creation Sources and Scripts

Dear Greg,

Yes, we haven't had much that we feel the need to maintain yet, save the 
token KJV2003 example.  This may change in the coming years when our 
community projects rev up.  I understand your concern to know where the 
source documents reside.  I guess the general answer to that is that the 
.conf file SHOULD have a valid TextSource= entry pointing to where the 
source was obtained.  To be sure our own modules have a link with 
longevity, you are certainly correct that we should standardize a 
location other than the likes of crosswire.org/~user/... :)  DM?
