I want as much developer info as possible to live on the wiki -- I and
the tiny CC staff just can't do the subject justice. There's
http://wiki.creativecommons.org/wiki/Developer, please improve it! :)
I'd love to tap the worldwide community for CC tech stuff, any advice?
Maybe the partner web guidelines should mandate a link to a developer
page (that's a joke!).

I agree. I've done a crappy job of communicating with open source
developers, it's a personal priority to change that. Immediately the
plan is to move developer/tech info to the wiki, code discussion to the
cctools-developers list, and be available on IRC. More stuff later...
