Hi Martin,

I am very interested in BibleSoftware using XML files. Currently I am 
working on an editor for OSIS files (very, very early stage). Can you 
please tell us more about the project (software architecture, 
programming language, licence (OpenSource I guess?), people working on 
the project, etc)

In Christ,
