Subject: RE: Singing Together at joe-offer.com
I think this particular effort started because we had a shortage of songs to add to the folkinfo song database (the policy was to be able to provide a reference others could use to where we had got the song) and a number of Singing Together songs seemed like good candidates.
Of course, Singing Together had been discussed before here an at folkinfo and I had one small collection as one starter.
The way we went about led to the omissions from the books as we weren't really sure whether a number of the translations fitted in with the folk song database or not...
Perhaps on reflection, even though it would have meant duplication, I should have created an "abc project" for Singing Together. That way each pamphlet could have been a single abc text file that wouldn't have affected the main database.
