    Are you planning to add any backward compatibility fetures with open song? I'm planning to use Open Song during following months and I'm wondering if it would be possible to move my song database to CS later on. Good job, by the way :D

     
    • I plan backward compatibility in the form of Import/Export filters.
      Or do you think that any additional form should be feasible?

      I think that import/export filters are very usefull for porting a single song. Maybe there should be separate tool for migrating the whole database? It might not be integrated into CS because you are most likely to migrate whole database only once.

       
    • I'd rather integrate a wizard direct into CS for migrating whole database (songs, sets, backgrounds).
      I think it's more user friendly not to have a separate tool, isn't it?

      CS won't be able to import Bibles from osong because CS will use a different format. I'd like to use SWORD ( http://crosswire.org ) format.

      You're right. Wizard is a better idea. The same goes for SWORD Bible format, as it's probably going to have big community and wide translation support.
