Logos 4 (and later) have included support for importing documents from Libronix DLS: https://wiki.logos.com/Importing_from_LDLS3

We will be removing support for these commands in Logos 8.9.

The "import notes" command is already obsolete because it doesn't create notes in the Notes Tool introduced in Logos 8. The other commands are unmaintained and were created to support the migration from Libronix DLS to Logos, a need that no longer exists for almost all active users.

It would be great to provide another way then to get those resources into L8 that can currently only be imported from the Libronix DVD. For example, the World Fact Book 1996 (which I do sometimes use to have some old data available as a point of comparison).

There are a few more resources that don't download automatically, but they are mostly Libronix manuals, so they're not that important (apart from reasons of nostalgia...)

This change has nothing to do with resources or licenses. It is about removing the feature that allowed users upgrading from Libronix DLS to Logos 4 to import their user-created documents (Notes & Highlights, Favorites, Prayer Lists, etc.).

Oh good, because I still have stuff to do in that department.
