H Andrew,

Great work on getting these, and I hope this is the first of many high
quality annotation dumps for OKFN Humanities projects!

I imagine that what is required to get these into Open Shakespeare is
technically beyond me, but let me know if I can help in anyway.

Keep me in the loop as to how we get on with this as I'm very keen to write
up these major additions to Open Shakespeare on the Open Knowledge
Foundation Blog.
