Ok, my cretiria for inclusion up for discussion:

1) Compilies with sword 1.6
2) Runs with sword 1.6
3) Runs with KDE 4.x
4) No major release-critical bugs (Data loss, System halt, etc)
5) Any other known bugs documented in release notes
6) Upstream should set a target date for 2.0 release before Debian
Import Freeze - 25th of June

Let's rut bibletime through 1-3, upload the current version to the PPA
and ask wider community to test it from the PPA. This should cover
1-4. And 4-5 is left to the upstream =D
