The former, as the CzeBKR as it currently stands is faulty 
(using the first edition text for the New Testament).

It has been exported to ODT by the Wikisource page itself.  

Meaning, I AM working on the WikiSource text (or there is some 
serious bug in their software, but I’d bet it’s better than what 
we have).

But see below ... I will drop ODT efforts alltogether. It is not

I understand that you insist to having everything under the
control and in secrecy (why would y'all otherwise hide 
maintainers, and also see the recent discussion on SVN v. DVCS), 
but I don’t think it is the best way how to encourage community

everybody behind the project).
