A couple of points/questions:
1. How can I make my own queries? Is it online or must something be downloaded? Or is it not yet ready for public release?
It is already released on github, at the links I provided above. But "it" is the data, you also need an XQuery processor. So you might consider getting BaseX or eXist or Zorba or Saxon to do your queries. I think BaseX is a good environment for this.
I will eventually have an online version of this, but I can't give any concrete timelines on that.

Absolutely. Take a look at this README
, particularly the markup scheme. Anything present in the markup can be queried.
Stephen Carlson wrote:3. It looks like the structure of articular infinitives is not consistently coded in the database. Does this means that some of the effort involves basically reverse engineering the variety of strategies that were used to parse the text? I don't know who, how many, or according to what standard the syntax trees were done.
So far, I don't think that they are inconsistently coded, I think that they occur in a variety of syntactic structures, but I'd love to discuss any possible inconsistencies or ideas for improvement. The article sometimes governs more than one infinitive, those infinitives may occur in more than one clause, and the underlying structure needs to be represented. I think the Greek results in many forms, we represent those forms, and you have to take that into account when you query.
Our lowfat trees are transformed from Randall Tan / Andi Wu's Global Bible Initiative syntax trees, and they rely on their interpretation. The transformation makes them easier to query and display.
