Hi Kenneth,

If you are looking for work to do, any of our issues[1] would be great to
on. As for problems that can be solved by Fluo, check out the example Fluo
applications on the related projects page[2] and the slides[3] for a talk
that I gave at the Accumulo Summit. Any research or white paper that you can
add about what problems can be solved Fluo would be helpful.

If you are interested, you could also create an example Fluo application
which I
think is the best way to learn Fluo. While creating WebIndex[4], I found a
of bugs and new features that were needed in Fluo. If you create an
take a look at the DevServer[5] in WebIndex as it shows a good way run your
application while developing it. The DevServer class runs the Fluo
and all of its dependencies using MiniFluo & MiniAccumuloCluster. While
need to run things differently on a cluster, MiniFluo is great for rapid
