I have two ideas.

One idea that Bob started a while back was the idea of taking on a 
particular project that needs doing in the Open Source world.  (Maybe 
this is my memory playing tricks on me - Bob was talking about 
modifications to pam to allow ssh to reject login scans, but this has 
now been done to death.)

Another, perhaps more egotistical, idea is: I've got a particular 
problem I'm trying to solve at work.  If people would be interested I 
could give a talk about what I've done and what has and hasn't worked so 
far, and then people can contribute their own suggestions and ideas on 
ways to go beyond where I've got to.  But that's really not something I 
want to impose on the group, although I always welcome hearing about 
other people's projects and ideas and contributing suggestions to them 
(like we did with Tridge's transactionalised tdb commit problem).

Anyway, we'll get there and talk about it all, I suspect.

Have fun,


P.S. If you feel it's out of line for me to ask for help with a personal 
problem like this, please let me know personally.
