Hi Jan,

I added these to the ASF wide wiki for GSoC proposals.  I don't know how much time we have for these but hopefully we can attract interested students ASAP.  Here's where I put them:

I have two proposals for GSOC:

Subject ID: directory-slp-da

Title: Implement Directory Agent (DA) in SLP

ASF Project: Directory - [WWW] http://directory.apache.org/

Keywords: java,ldap,slp

Description: A DA stores service informations and exchanges those service
informations with other DAs located on the same or different subnet. Service
Agents (SA) and User Agents (UA) either register or obtain services at a DA.
The Apache SLP implementation misses Directory Agent (DA) functionality. See
[WWW] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Service_Location_Protocol

Possible Mentors: Jan Rellermeyer, Markus Kuppe

Subject ID: directory-slp-ipv6

Title: Implement the IPv6 support in the Apache DS SLP provider

ASF Project: Directory - [WWW] http://directory.apache.org/

Keywords: java,slp,ipv6

Description: SLP allows service discovery in network both with a central
directory agent (DA) and in multicast mode. There is an RFC 3111 to support
IPv6 with SLP. The idea of this project is to implement this IPv6 support
and the changes described in the RFC to map the SLP scopes to different
multicast addresses.

See [WWW] ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc3111.txt
Possible Mentors: Jan Rellermeyer

Comments are welcomed.
