[sword-devel] OSIS looks daunting. Can I import from existing VPL format?

First - Sword still has an application for converting vpl files to
modules. But - currently this is now deprecated and would (I think)
need considerable modification to get to a properly formed module which
is not normal versification. What is 'normal', I ask? What I am
suggesting is that you start by modifying our vpl2mod.cpp to accept what
you have, and output it into a module. If you don't program in C++, you
will need help here.
OSIS would be ideal, and I know that Sword insists on an OSIS original
if we are to host the module. It could be hosted elsewhere, of course.
I suspect that if you were able to do something along the lines I
suggest, then one of us might be able eventually to convert it from a
module into OSIS.
I might offer a little practical help, but have no knowledge at all of
the Gaelic (even though me dad was a Limerick man!) Don't expect a lot
from me though.
You did take the point that we have no connection whatsovever with
e-sword? Just be aware that Sword has far more potential as it runs on
many, many different platforms.
