Sounds like an excellent idea, I’d be happy help with basic editing work.
Though I wonder how much work would actually be necessary, if this kind of project would provide much more than has already been done in other edits like Hal’s PT and TFA Restructured? It would be interesting to write up some possible changes, including new ideas and things that would be copied from existing edits and see how those two things compare.
As you say, things can’t really be finalised until ep9 is out, but that’s no reason not to get started if enough people are on board 😄
Also, Hal’s point about having RogueLeader guide the project is a good one. Collaboration is great and all, but a project this large could benefit from some solid direction.
