There are a few specific plug-ins I am very interested in developing.

1) Active Directory Authentication

(LDAP + Kerberos + DNS, by way of SAMBA) Active Directiory plugin for unified user authentication among multiple mediagoblin instances within a site domain. Useful for use cases involving multiple mediagoblin instances that are not synched with a single database.

2) Social Network Federation

StatusNet/OStatus/PumpIO social network federation, possibly with Diaspora/TentIO and Friendica/Zot/Red protocols on the distant roadmap with the same python federation library.

3) Extended Social Functions

Specifically: journals, submission feeds and pub/sub, distinct submission channels (sub-contexts), threaded comments on submissions, submission replies (reply to a submission with a submission), interest groups and sub-communities (user groups you can submit media and journals to, in addition to microblogs and commentary)

4) Integrated Chat

(via libpurple) Extensive chat, including groupchat. Would preferably be tied to a chat server hosted by the same domain (or a sub-domain). Preferably would include voice and video chat, but obviously that comes after textual group chat. May automatically manage and instantiate skype group chats with skypekit running over wine.
