It's Integrating Digital Papyrology, and it's conceptually and
intellectually a very interesting project. It brings together the small
but global community of ancient papyrologists around the relatively small,
fragmentary, and difficult corpus of Greek, and it is creating a Web-based
collaborative editing environment for the corpus of papyri. The community
of papyrologists is in its way as arcane as some subfields of physics, and
in such a field, where a lot of expertise arises from self-selection,
issues of quality assurance arise in a manner that differs substantially
from, say, the collaborative curation of early modern print materials.
But the underlying technologies and principles are very similar, and
mutatis mutandis there is a lot to be learned here.
