BSD will be starting a new cycle of software development this summer. As
most of you know, much of the software made available through Berkeley was
contributed by the user community. We wish to continue this tradition and
encourage anyone who is interested in contributing software to the user
community to contact us. We also have many projects, ranging in difficulty
from weekend hacks to master's or doctorate level work, that we do not have
time to do ourselves.

Possible projects include:

autodialer manager/daemon
biff(1) replacement (mail notification)
conferencing system
csh cleanups and the addition of ksh features, particularly
functions and command line editing
System V compatible cron(8) and at(1) programs
documentation browsing system
multi-buffered tape driver
multiuser, message-based application scheduler
public-domain NFS
replacement of current various current utilities with
public domain source code
make(1) replacement

We would appreciate being contacted by anyone interested working on these,
or any other, projects.
