Hello there!

I'm from Debian Crosswire Packaging Team. We package sword related
stuff in Debian and Ubuntu. We also are running daily-builds,
developer-preview and stable ppa with sword softwares.

I have recently managed to build a debian package for sword SWIG
python bindings. I now hope to package BPBible for Debian/Ubuntu.

As a first step I have create a stub launchpad.net/bpbible project.
This project on launchpad is to facilitate our team's packaging
efforts. Similar projects are set-up for sword, bibletime and xiphos.
All of these are under ubrella project "crosswire" on launchpad.

What do we use launchpad for? We will have automatic bzr import of
bpbible svn trunk. Debian packaging will derive / use that, since our
team has standardised on packaging using bzr branches.

All the rest of launchpad project page *clearly* states that upstream
website, upstream code hosting, upstream bug-tracking, upstream
translations and upstream support is done elsewhere not on launchpad.
That is here on google-code / google-groups combo.

I hope you are ok with this. I hope to start packaging BPBible as soon
as I sort out migrating our current packages to sword-1.6.2.

You can contact Debian Crosswire Packaging team via open mailing list
pkg-crosswire-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org.

With best regards,

Dmitrijs Ledkovs
