Hi Troy,

I'm waiting on details of svn setup, and haven't chased that up as I've also been moving house.

I still think that the work I've done is modifications to the existing code in https://crosswire.org/svn/gobible
So it should be a branch, or copy of the trunk/GoBibleCreator project in that repository.

By using the jsword repository, the history of the code is lost when I check in the code obtained from GoBibleCreator.

Perhaps the solution is to do both: create a utility jar based on GoBibleCreator, maintained in the GoBible repository, and used by
a new jsword project?

I looked into producing diffs to add to the jira issue I raised, 
but couldn't figure out how jsword works with configurable options. There seems to be a framework for them included in jsword, but I
can't find any usage of that framework.

Adding a generator to the CD sounds fairly easy.

Stephen Denne.
