Thanks Peter.

I was aware of Jon Bitgood having several projects on GitHub. I’ve even commented on some of them during 2017.

Here’s my problem:
The language Blackfoot does not appear, nor does any unknown language code, looking at the CrossWire Main repo from PocketSword. And that’s after a contents refresh.

NB. Michael Johnson works closely with the Digital Bible Society. He knows Jon Bitgood. Are we potentially duplicating content that would ordinarily be hosted on the eBible.org rep?

Btw. It looks right now as though the eBible.org repo has become unavailable. Is this the case for all users? Hopefully, this is merely a temporary outage.
