Just to be clear... that's *June* 25th... not May 25th :)

I think everyone involved would like that.  And I don't see any real 
obstacles to achieving that.  BTW, did you mean bibletime -- bibledit is 
already there, leading the way :)

"All the fixes" is a bit vague.  I'd say we should aim to have something 
uploadable into Debian for SWORD 1.6.0 rather sooner than that, such as 
27 May (!).  Then we can do more SWORD package releases as we fix up 
remaining "minor" things, if we need to.

As soon as we have SWORD 1.6.0 in Debian, we can of course put Xiphos 
3.1 and BT 2.0 (once released) into the same Debian release(s) also.  If 
we get to June 7th or so with no BT 2.0 final release, for some 
unexpected reason, then we can carefully consider putting a BT beta or 
rc into Debian unstable at that time.  I hope we won't need to.
