Here are a user's comments on the process.  So I suppose I could send somebody a public key to add to the JSword github repo and add the private key to Amanuens.
Honestly, this is scary from a security POV - you really want to use a fork of jsword for this, and we can perhaps coordinate on pulling the translations in.

any random github account for amanuens that forks jsword will do. and someone will need to keep the repo updated on the fork (easily scriptable FWIW)

The current jsword svn is frozen, and there were already fixes at jsword's github repo, this at least won't fly
