I haven't been satisfied with this mirror (not proper names in git
fashion, no branches, and no tags), so I have created IMHO a more proper
one on https://gitorious.org/sword/sword

I know there is an organization on https://github.com/crosswire which
has been already used by JSword folks, but let me just say that I prefer
free software hosting over proprietary ones. Also, with DVCS it doesn't
matter that much which server the repository is currently hosted on, it
can be transferred to github easily if the wish arises.

I am certainly willing to add more collaborators to the repo or create
sword-maintainers team.

This repo should be automatically mirrored each day from SVN.
