Enhance zeroconfd, the Multicast DNS daemon, that was begun in NetBSD's Google Summer of Code 2005 (see work in progress: http://netbsd-soc.sourceforge.net/projects/zeroconf/). Develop a client library that lets a process publish mDNS records and receive asynchronous notification of new mDNS records. Adapt zeroconfd to use event(3) and queue(3). Demonstrate comparable functionality to the GPL or APSL alternatives (Avahi, Howl, ...), but in a smaller storage footprint, with no dependencies outside of the NetBSD base system.
