I placed a sample script at 

This will download the current version of Wikisource's Wycliffe 
translation from https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Bible_(Wycliffe) and 
convert it to USFM, writing each book as it downloads. I wrote this for

make it convert to OSIS instead. (Or simply use usfm2osis.py to convert 
the resulting USFM to OSIS.)
