Providing a mapserver extension for node.js is of interest to me because it opens up the possibility to build some very high performance web services. The evented I/O system in node.js is something I have experimented with recently and I think it has a lot of possibilities for helping to build high performance web mapping services.
If you are interested in participating in the development directly, contributing to discussions about the API that is being exposed, building node.js applications on top of it, helping with documentation or tests, or just because its geekily (?) cool that would be great!
I don't want to flood the mapserver-dev mailing list with ongoing traffic specifically about this project so email me directly or participate through issues and the wiki on github until we can judge the level of interest - if it is sufficient, I can set up a google group or something.
PS a shoutout to hobu and vhn for helping me understand some basic C and C++ things on IRC - thanks!
