    :) I began working on this today. Watch this space. Its not easy.

    Can I get some feedback on what sory of gallery you are looking for? Do you want users to have private galleries and public ones etc.?

    I also got plans to extend my plug-in (WPG2) to work with MU. Watch http://www.blogyourphotos.com/ which I am going to turn into a MU community with G2 for photo blogging..

    Let me get 1.0 out the door before I can fork and port it over to MU.

    I start a thread in the wpg2 forums about this after 1.0.

    Yeah, the combination of WPMU + Gallery2 would be the core of my community as well. Can't wait....

    Ok WPG2 Code is now considered stable enough for GOLD 1.0 so I just forked it to create MUWPG2 and opened up a place on the WPG2 Forums for MUWPG2 -> http://wpg2.ozgreg.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=13

    Ok had a very quick stab at the port to see what issues are going to come up..

    The good news is the WPG2 plugin does function under MU
    The bad news, MU rewrite clobbers it pretty badly (Going to need some changes in the .htaccess) but the really bad news is the G2 API so does not like the different subdomains for the blogs and breaks the image paths...

    ok I got the MUG2 plug-in up and running by utilising a few quick hacks and some create rewrite gallery2 rules :-) but the good news is the plug-in does appear to be working out of the box so to speak.. I write up what I did in the http://wpg2.ozgreg.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=13 MU Forums.

    I threw this together last night so it is a crude but a working example of Gallery2 and WPG2 playing in MU

    I thought I'd include my update on this. As far as I can tell I have all of this working now. I'm using MU with VHOSTS and Gallery2 with the WPG2 plugin. I only had to make very minor mods to the plugin and a few small changes to MU so that users were not created as level 10. I thought I had it and then discovered that wp-admin -> users -> authors ... allowed the blog owner to update themselves back to a 10. I made the mod ozgreg described in post http://mu.wordpress.org/forums/topic/262 and then modified wp-inst/wp-admin/menu.php so that only the site admin has access to the Authors & Users tab.
    I bet this has really confused everyone but I *think* I have it working at http://wugga.com if anyone wants to go bang it around a little and see if its stable.

    Can I please have an update on where Gallery2 intergration with MU is up to?
    Obviously OK on wugga.com?
    Any link to DOCs on the tweaks that may be required?

    Cheers!

    It is still going from the coding changes point of view, the plugin work can be completed simply but the biggest issues which are being resolved are the two Gallery2 limitations..

    A) Rewrite API (the rewrite module is confusing to configure (Done and I am coding this right now)
    B) Gallery2 API does not support CMS being on different subdomain as Gallery2 which I am testing a patch for..

    It has just taken time to request that the Gallery2 developers extend their API's to cover these limitations and certainly a testament to the developers that they are willing to extend G2 to cover these requirements..

    I am still aiming MUWPG2 1.0 to be released with Gallery2 2.1 .

    That all said it is possible to utilise the WPG2 plugin right now, it just has a few issues that I would like taken care of before I release the module..

    If you want to know what is happening with the MUWPG2 plugin then I have a forum for MUWPG2 over @ http://wpg2.ozgreg.com/forums/
