This idea pops up every few years, and it's surely a good idea. It just
has two major problems:

a) Copyright issue, since they simply won't allow us to do it. (And this
conserns not only CBS. HolQeD also has a copyright notice)

b) It's a hell of work to compile all that information. This is not only
about collecting the information; to have it in a kind of
book/collection, it needs hours and hours of formatting, spell checking,
layout, design etc.

The only solution that seems to be working is what we are doing right
now: try to set up an online compendium, like you do with boQwI', and I
do with my Klingon Wiki. An honestly, coming back to problem "b": How
many people do you really have in your team working on boQwI'? I have
given up asking people for assistance for my wiki. :-(
