Excellent work.  I have built and reviewed the package.  Everything
looked good, so I have just now uploaded.

Stretch was frozen about 8 weeks ago.  In theory an upload to unstable
coule be done at any time, but with a change this significant, I would
advise waiting until after release.  There is not a firm release date
set as far as I know, but perhaps by May/June the release should be done
and we can upload to unstable.

Also, because the source package introduces new binary packages, it will
need to pass NEW processing and it is likely that the old bibledit-gtk
source package will need to be manually removed by the FTP masters.
Have a look at the Debian Developer's Reference, section 5.9, for

That is interesting.  I was not aware of that project.
