Hey Jukka,

I totally am. I've got some PHP skillz and Python skillz 
that I would be willing to throw into the mix here.

One other thing along these lines I've had in mind for a while:
how cool would it be to have a CentOS RPM, or Debian pkg
or something like this and try and get tika into the std Linux 
distributions? Like you install Linux and then you have the 
tika command (maybe a wrapper around tika-app) at your 
disposal? That would be awesome.

Anyhoo I'll be here to lend a hand when we're ready to get
