I thought minotaur already wasn't public.  If it was, I'd have had  
Noisegate contact it directly instead of going through pony.

It sends a GET request to "http://pony.noisebridge.net/gate/unlock/? 
key=12345" or such.  The unlock script then sends a POST request to  
minotaur.

The Android app is fine.  The unlock CGI script it calls might need  
to be changed to accommodate the changes on minotaur.
