This is a doable project, certainly with volunteer work, but some person(s)
need to map out the project in advance. The other possible sticking point is
copyright; in NANFA we haven't made people sign over copyright for their
writing, so strictly speaking every author--living, dead, or MIA--would have
to agree in writing to be included.
Other than that, it's not so difficult...
