Customizing Omeka

I’d love to learn about how people are customizing their Omeka sites with a session along the lines of this one (“Making Content Shine with Omeka”) led by Amanda French at THATCamp Philly 2011.  On a broad level, I’d like to learn how people are re-purposing the organizational categories that Omeka comes out of the box with, such as “items,” “collections,” and “exhibits,” and what theoretical outlooks are informing the decision to say, change “exhibits” into “lesson plans.”  On a technical level, I’d like to see how people are customizing the “show items” php file to re-name and re-order some of the Dublin Core Fields.
