SBB denied permissions, someone from Brasília intends to try again.

SBT has been contacted, anticipating answer.

IBB has left the door open to a future favourable answer. Need to follow up with request for permissions on Versão Revisada and its Almeida Século XXI successor.

Corrigida low-quality copies are available, we need to evaluate if it is worthwhile to move forward: old translation, not too good, OCR will be troublesome.

Tradução Brazileira copy obtained, working library contacts to find a book scanner.

For all these, please ask for further information at sword-devel.

Permissions were obtained on a number of texts from SBP, as per post at sword-devel.
