Hi Peter,

Honest answer: I don't know.  More details below.

Understood.  I have been aware of the move to other versifications for a
few years now, and that has made me more certain that av11n *should* be
supported by BPBible.  Unfortunately, that doesn't magic up time to work on
it :(.

I did start work on av11n early last year, but got side-lined with other
I actually tried to pick it up again last weekend, but found that I had
broken my entire development environment in non-trivial ways I'll have to
work through.

Probably what I said to Greg recently sums it up: "BPBible does not support
av11n.  It has been hovering very close to the top of the list for a number
of years, but is an unknown amount of work."

My statement would be something like:
Usable: Yes (though unfortunately with the KJV v11n only).
Maintained: Not much.
Abandoned/Dead: No (though closer to it than I would like).
