:    I am a Final Year Undergraduate Student in Computer Science and
:Engineering. I have had previous experience in WAFL and I am considering
:working on "Adding the Data Deduplication Mechanism in Hammer", listed on
:GSoC '10 Projects list as my Final Year BTech Project.
:Is someone working on that currently?

    I don't think anyone is currently working on it and we just put
    up a code bounty for it as well.

    Before you begin seriously you need to get DragonFly running and
    get used to using HAMMER.  The code-base isn't too difficult to
    understand and the de-dup work, in theory, is quite straightforward,
    but HAMMER as a whole is a complex filesystem.
