And yes, the irony of asking this on a WWW service has occured....
Probably involving HTML, but also capable of talking to eBook readers such as #Kobo, or software such as #PocketBook or #FBReader. Should have bibliographic metadata, and serve PDF, ePub, mobi, djvu, and other formats. Possibly on demand.

I ran one for a while and it's really rather good. My only complaint was that it is difficult to find or create decent looking themes.
The last post I received from Chris Webber linked to an update he wrote on HN that basically suggested MediaGoblin is a dead project. Which is a shame, because there's a need for a media server that focused on curated collections/ galleries (eg all the talk videos, photos, slides, and paper, from Conference X), rather than feeds (#PixelFed, #PeerTube etc). He also said the federation code is almost done. Is there anyone out there keen to take over as maintainer?
