Great to hear that. Github makes it very easy to contribute (fork, modify,
send pull request, and have us merge your code). So technically, you are
all set.

The more important question is what you want to work on. It is probably
best to look into functionality that is of interest to you. The things we
are currently working on are the assigned issues in our issue tracker.
Mainly, Fredo and I are working to get dump file download and parsing done
ASAP, Julian is working on basic data structures that should help with
indexing later on, and Michael is looking at implementing initial MediaWiki
API bindings.

There are many open questions regarding the MW API implementation, so maybe
this could be a good place to contribute if you are already experienced
with that. Initially, we only want to support read access, but write access
would also be nice at some point. We probably will organize the API code on
a per-module basis for low-level access, and then provide some higher level
wrappers for more convenient access. Due to the modular nature of the API,
this work is easy to split.

Other open issues that are not worked on yet are related to serialisation
in useful dump format (RDF, "official" JSON, MediaWiki dump XML [useful to
dump part of the data in a file that can be re-imported into another

But maybe you have other ideas too.
