We were just talking about how buddycloud could help out with some of 
these projects.

The OSLO protocol isnot really a project and so we would need help 
turning it into something with deliverables, and a test suite, but if 
there is interest in offering something around location/place federation 
between services then we would be happy to mentor that happening.

We wrote up the OSLO protocol.  It's not really XEP-able but more of a 
recipe in how different social services would enable users to share 
their location with one-another:


If there's interest in this then myself and the rest of the team at 
buddycloud towers would be happy to contribute mentorship.

Additionally, we were talking about the need for a good XMPP unit 
testing suite.  This is something that we need for some of our products 
and I'm sure that other's do too.  Perhaps a GSOC project too?
