Geoclue is a modular geoinformation service built on top of the D-Bus messaging system. The goal of the Geoclue project is to make creating location-aware applications as simple as possible.
One of the huge things the G1 and the iPhone do is location awareness. Right now, applications that do that kind of things on Openmoko needs to use Gypsy... but what if GPS isn't available? What about cell tower location, or ip address?
Geoclue takes care of that. http://geoclue.freedesktop.org/
It seems perfect for inclusion in FSO - it uses dbus, is used outside of Openmoko, and is Free Software.
