Note: Although they appear to be SWORD modules, and SWORD modules work on their MK program, these modules do not work on standard SWORD software. This is because the MK program is based on a fork of the SWORD engine source code, adapted to seamlessly provide dual versification for a variant of the Russian Synodal Translation (RST) versification and that of the KJV. Central Asian translations generally follow the RST. With the advent of [[Alternate Versification]] in SWORD, it is envisaged that the MK program may eventually become fully compatible, though the modules currently available from IBT will never be compatible with any release of SWORD from CrossWire.

The Repository directory has to be specified for the Install Manager in the SWORD Project for Windows, which uses FTP access. Likewise for the other front-ends based on the SWORD API.

The Catalog & ZIP directories have to be specified for the JSword based installer (e.g. as used for Bible Desktop), which uses HTTP access.

The 'Site Name' field is just a convenient name for managing/selecting repositories. Users may edit these without any loss of functionality, as long as they ensure that each is uniquely and appropriately named.

CrossWire maintains a Master Repositories List (filename: masterRepoList.conf) which is accessed by most front-end applications. Some front-ends require a refresh operation to ensure that the latest edition of the MRL is installed. The MRL includes some but not all of CrossWire repositories and some of the Affiliated repositories.

Some front-end apps (e.g. PocketSword) permit the manual addition of an FTP source though the Download UI.

Some front-end apps (e.g. Xiphos) also permit the manual addition of an HTTP source via the Module Manager UI.

Affiliated Repositories
