I hope we will never have to work on such huge project. The main success of this is that it is FAST and gets completed before people get bored and frustrated of typing. From previous experiences in other fields, these projects tend to slow down after 3/4 days, and are prone to die if the completion time goes further 15 days, expecially if no actual result is given to the typers, and this will be the case (it makes no sense to publish half of the rom...)
This is anyway just speculation, we will see what happens if we will need such a job done!!
