[sword-devel] Russian Synodal translation - call for help

Hi guys,

I am writing to the three groups I most expect Russian speakers to be on.

A fortnight or so I have obtained permissions and a high quality text to
use for the Russian Synodal translation + permissions to use the Bob
Jones database of Russian Strong numbers.

It also looks like as if we will get permissions for a proper Russian
Strong dictionary. Not sure about that yet.

To apply the Strong codes onto the new text Kostya ("Kalemas") has
written a great script. It does the huge bulk of work.

Nevertheless there is a significant amount of checking by hand now
necessary. This is too much for Kostya alone and he requires help. I do
not speak or read Russian, so my ability to help is essentially now zero.

Those of you who are Russian speakers and are willing to assist - please
respond to me privately and send me your OpenSSH public key so that I
can give you access to the git repo we work in.

This has been a huge answer to prayer, but it requires now some sweat to
make reality.
