[sword-devel] "Known bad, do not test" modules in Beta

Hi all.

Looking at the http://crosswire.org/wiki/Modules_in_the_beta_repository#Beta_Dictionary_Modules wiki page, it appears that we have many dictionary modules that are marked as "Known bad, do not test".  I was wondering if we could move these modules to the "experimental" repo?  That way users won't try to use them and instead find that they are broken and want to report them as so.  Or move them to somewhere where users can't readily access them (both through adding the "beta" repo to their install manager and through the use of the SWORD lib's swInstallMgr->refreshRemoteSourceConfiguration();).

I realise that it is called the "Beta Repository" for a good reason, but I'd really appreciate it if modules that are "known bad" were either deleted or moved elsewhere?  :)

Thanks, ybic
	nic...  :)

ps:  I'm referring to modules that we know are properly broken.  Others that "sorta work" and just have some minor issues are fine, but those ones are the ones we want to be testing in the Beta repo.  the ones that are "Known bad, do not test" generally have major issues such that we don't even want to be reporting what's bad/wrong with them...  :)
