Files transferring now. I can point bibkn.org to any server you desire
if you wish to arrange what is put there.

The premise of this project is to use simple JSON to help people share
data easily, and we are achieving that. The data that can be exported
from bibsoup is of the form described at bibjson.org. We are currently
proposing to support rigour via JSON-LD for those who want it, without
compromising simplicity. Other views on this would be great.

There is a numbered release available for download in the repo, and
the milestones indicate plans for the next release. The schedule is
one release on the 14th of each month, for the near future.
