Are there any computer science students on the UKNOF list who might be interested in this?
Google have a global program aimed at getting more student developers into open source software via a 3-month mentored coding project. ISC has been selected as one of the participating mentor organizations in this year's Google Summer of Code program - specifically for the ISC Kea project. Kea is a grassroots-up rewrite of the DHCP server protocol, not long out of its infancy but rapidly gaining interest from network admins. https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/organizations/5884725911093248/ Students who get a project proposal accepted are paid a stipend for the three months while they're coding - more details here: https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/how-it-works/ https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/help/ And if ISC Kea isn't 'your thing' - there are plenty of other organisations in the programme hoping to receive project proposals, several others with a networks angle to them.
