it's great news that project achieved some success - I'll try to see if TechPresentations.org data can be used in Yahoo! Search Monkey ;)

The project completed semi-successfully.  I preface it with "semi-"
because there were still a few issues but I think the foundation is
solid.  I hope to see us circle around in Q1 to push that out in a
more concrete fashion.

The code as it stands is available from our git repository; a web view
is available at
http://code.creativecommons.org/viewgit?p=semanticmediawiki.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/rdfa,
checkout instructions can be found at http://code.creativecommons.org.
