Not sure which if any of your links include references to Distributed Proofreaders, http://pgdp.net, but DP was the first production focused crowdsourcing effort, seven years ago. All volunteers, but unlike any other Open Source software or other community collaborative thing, focusing all their energies on the speed and accuracy of making "better" electronic versions of books.

Far as I know, all the others are simple work-accumulators or open-ended conversations about stuff.
