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 (
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.
