"a few" years ago? This sounds very familiar to the story of D'Armond 
Speers, but that has already happened many many years ago.

There are many articles about this, here's a random one:

What I always kept wondering lately is that the project was stopped due 
to too many missing words. But today, the amount of words has increased, 
so one could maybe try this again?
