Great! You are very welcome! This is a really important project,
though the scope is quite a bit larger than one person can
realistically achieve in 3 months, so you'll have to prioritise (we'll
help you with that). You can start by taking a look at issues labeled
"nix-local-build" on the bug tracker:

Duncan Coutts, as the principal author of new-build, would be the
obvious first choice. However, he seems to be unavailable right now,
but will probably be back before summer. I can also help you with your
project, and I've also spoken to Edward Z. Yang, with whom I believe
you've already had some interaction; he's also open to the idea of
being a mentor or a co-mentor.
Please don't forget to apply before tomorrow's deadline.
