As with other open source applications, they can be a great learning experience. Here we have an entire application shown on a web page. The application itself functions as a rudimentary wiki-style note taking tool. The use I see is as a very small chunk of code that makes a complete application. Use it for what you want, but if you want to get started dabbling in Python on your Series60 handset this may be a good place to start.
