Today, I got that permission from Milton of the Bible Society of Papua New Guinea. Along the way, I got permission for many more. Please see the current list at ftp://ebible.org/pub/Scriptures/translations.csv (which is best viewed in LibreOffice Calc, imported as UTF-8, quote and comma delimited). Source for this Bible is at ftp://ebible.org/pub/Scriptures/tpi_osis.zip or ftp://ebible.org/pub/Scriptures/tpi_usfm.zip, whichever works best. The text is identical in both. (I will probably generate a module within a few weeks if nobody else does, first.) The license is Creative Commons BY-ND-NC, with additional permission to make file format changes that don't change the text or punctuation of the Scriptures, like making a Sword module. Extracts are allowed, too, so you can ignore the Apocrypha/Deuterocanon if you like, to make modules for front ends that can't handle those books.
