The need to update the Arabic Bible book names has prompted this e-mail.

I have started looking into redirecting the Amanuens translation tool,
which is used by And Bible translators, from svn to github.  Can/how do we
get commit rights to the new jsword repository on github?

To set up Amanuens to check into And Bible github repository I had to
create a ssh key pair, upload the private key to Amanuens and the public
one to github.  Here are a user's comments on the
 So I suppose I could send somebody a public key to add to the JSword
github repo and add the private key to Amanuens.

Regarding branches: When JSword used svn Amanuens checked into the tip.
 Has a particular branching
discussed or are we updating master?  The branching model may be
irrelevant to Amanuens because Amanuens will probably have
into anything except master.

DM, one alternative would be for you to create your own Amanuens account
for JSword resources which you could manage, but I am happy to continue as
we are.

A quick hack would be for me to leave Amanuens configured as it is for now,
check into the JSword svn, copy the translated file, and make a Pull
request on the github account.
