We have a place to submit bugs & bugfixes. It's the bug tracker:

As a bonus, you can search the tracker to see if the bug you think you 
found has already been identified. If you do us the courtesy of 
reporting bugs through the established protocols, you're more likely to 
get some kind of response (even if it is simply to have your bug closed 
as a duplicate).

sword-devel is a big mailing list with many subscribers and many 
posters. From my perspective, there's often a lot of noise on the list 
that I can't be bothered to read.

I would assume this requires a change to function signatures, so it's 
not going to appear in 1.7.x at all.

I haven't looked at the code, but the idea of mapping between 
versification systems (not versifications of particular translations but 
versification systems, as we define them) is completely ridiculous. It 
will not work as intended, except in limited circumstances: between the 
KJV(A), NRSV(A), and MT/Leningrad systems. Those are the cases where a 
versification system reflects a single particular translation's 
versification. Any other system (Catholic, Vulg, LXX, Synodal, etc.) 
cannot be reliably mapped to/from.
