Hey, glad to hear there's interest in this.
At present, I'm learning Textpattern, the tags system for skins, etc. There's very little documentaion for plugins but I'm looking over some exisiting ones to get a feel for how it all works.
pos3idon, you can use extern.php, there's documentation included in the file. Or use the rss.php that has been tweaked over time: http://punbb.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=6586
