Hi Thomas, we had a great gsoc 2010! Three proposals were accepted by
Apache and successfully completed.

You've see this page? http://community.apache.org/gsoc.html

A couple of the unimplemented ZK GSOC issues look interesting (DNS?).

Also, have you considered working with bookkeeper at all? Or Hedwig?
(they both use ZK, currently contribs but could move to subs if
there's sufficient community interest). Both projects have the
potential to be big (hadoop HDFS may use BK) . I personally think the
FUSE interface to BK would be cool. Both BK and Hedwig are relatively
new, significant work needs to be done to make them production ready
(vs ZK which is relatively mature at this point).
