&gt; Hi,<br>
&gt; I am not familiar with the different module download frameworks used b=
ut I was hoping to add the contents of Xiphos to the list of modules downlo=
adable by And Bible.<br>
&gt; Can you see any issues with this?<br>
</div>Yes. Last time I tried I found that the assumptions that JSword made =
about names being in all lower case, which is true in the CrossWire reposit=
ories, is not true in the Xiphos repository. I never brought it up to Karl =
because it was not a pressing issue.<br>

Either Xiphos repository needs to change or JSword needs to accommodate.<br=
It might work now. Haven&#39;t tested it for a while.<br>

&gt; Can I put those parameters into InstallManager.plugin?<br>

&gt; I was planning to add Xiphos but seeing all the modules in CrossWire b=

 them too.<br>
</div>When I added beta to JSword the modules there were pretty good. Now m=
any of them are experimental. If I had to do it over again, I wouldn&#39;t =
have added it.<br>
