of a single source, or perhaps a huge, omnicomprehensive, ever-expanding
inventory (a database) inclusive of all 'pertinent' digital sources,
available for all researchers worldwide would be one way to go ?

of relatively ephimerous personal websites (many of which are excellent in
content)... Money then, for the creation/development of the permanent Mother
of all Voynichean websites? It should include a full-fledged, user-friendly
presentation that synthetizes all the 'juice' in the list archives since
1991, all the related bibliography and top resources. With it, the global
research effort is likely to continue to grow and reach new heights with a
better aim.
> I think the ideal project should enable our eventual sponsor to fund the
effort to provide all VMS researchers with one good tool (a dream database,
for example), something that maybe we could all help develop in a voluntary
way and which would contribute substantially to boost our individual efforts
to (a) break the cypher or (b) discover the proof of its origin/author/date
in a definitive manner.

A solution! :-(
