I was very impressed with the ease and speed of setting up MediaWiki. 

I'd be interested in joining a development effort before seeing the
OpenMoko API, as many of the ideas I've seen can be logically divorced
from the low-level (e.g. dialing, negotiating connections), and the
high-level API wrappers for the GUI/input etc. There's a lot of grunt
work to do which can be done using stubs for the API functionality which
hasn't been released yet. 

For example - I'm not hearing much about middleware in the OpenMoko API
- how different applications can collaborate, create metadata (e.g. for
usage-prediction), and share resources or data - I suspect (although I'd
love to be wrong) that there isn't much support for such things.

Not that I know of, but I think that would be really rather handy!
