If it stayed in the masterRepoList.conf then any user that wish to have
a Bible or commentary that's not yet fully released could have it, and
after noticing the label "experimental", he/she should realize that
there may be problems. If users are exposed to experimental modules,
their feedback could be helpful in taking out the bugs. So, my vote,
$0.02 worth, would be to let it remain in the master repository list.
