today I setup a live demo of the mediawiki extension I wrote on a 
internet accessible mediawiki installation on Arnulfs server. -> 

In the moment its not really showing what its made for because there are 
only two users of this wiki instance in the moment.

It is not the question If I finish it, it is only the question when. ;-) 
But I like to work on it and I'm willing to make it better and better.

Yes, and also the privacy thing is maybe an issue. I think not everybody 
wants to have a "track" of his editing locations public accessible. Its 
just a nice thing for a geo mashup with the geocoding service I 
thought... and there was something about it on the discussion page ( 
http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Category_talk:OSGeo_Member ).

I will try to make some more functions and improve it. I would be very 
happy for any suggestions for what could be better done or what would be 
a good additional function.

Best regards,
