Good question, we should make a dump of the site with anonymized data.
Also, we should make it simpler for mirroring of the content. Any
ideas on how to do this from others?

We need to make sure that mirror, is not indexed by google, duplicated
content is not good. Mirror should always have robots.txt that block
all bots. Maybe there is a way to have mirror site that don't affect
google ranking.

Did you see this talk on TED by Tim Berners-Lee
http://www.ted.com/talks/tim_berners_lee_on_the_next_web.html

We can make data queryable we can do this by allow users to use sql for
that of course password will be hidden, but there is no reason why
don't show user data, they are not secret, all data are visible on the
site (users can use Web scraping to get the same data out of the site).
And if we have such thing maybe someone will use it to create something
cool. And I talk about aiki_users and ocal_files tables (and tags and
categories if we will have those when we fix database layout).

We can create mirror database and making synch everyday, We can alow
users to use mysql or allow user to access it via http, and it can
return xml.

Of course anonymous Aiki data is different thing.
