Sleepy is a great way to describe our project at textonline.org! I get 
to it after semesters close (which is right now for us in America), and 
I need to chase down our provider to fix the site's database! Hopefully 
when my dissertation is done I will make lots of progress.

Currently the effort in regard to Greek is essentially dormant. For 
Hebrew, I am working on checking the glosses that you, David IB, 
obtained from the OLB lexicon to make sure they conform to BDB and 
Strongs, thus moving the source way from the OLB source and toward 
public domain material. I am using WeSay, a program written by SIL to 
enable collaboration in developing lexicons. The files are in LIFT XML 
and housed at LanguageDepot.org. If you or someone you know would like 
to contribute to the ongoing work, register there and let me know so I 
can get you (or another) set up to contribute. WeSay uses Mercurial for 
version control, but all the user does is click Send/Receive button in 
WeSay. It is really user-friendly once it is set up. Once I get the 
textonline.org site back up and running I will make sure the 
instructions there are clear.

But for Strongs, another source is at OpenScriptures.org. I think they 
are working on perfecting a Strong's source in OSIS.
