Wikipedia wants contract developers for development of a Digital Library Card Platform


Wikipedia is looking for developers to create a Digital Library Card Platform, announcement here. 

The project will streamline the process by which Wikipedia editors gain access to paywalled research accounts. 

The developers will work on a Unix platform.  The contract description does not mention which languages are needed?  (Java?? C++??)
  
The project comes about as part of improving open source and open access, addressing ultimately some of the problems that Aaron Swartz had one faced.
