I thought that last summer after SOTM, there was some desire to build
a system similar to OSB but integrated to the main site and
opensource. There was even a talk about having a hack weekend (or
day?) in London but unfortunately I can't find any trace of it.
It probably disappeared due to the pressing issues linked to API 0.6.
