I am not 100% sure, if I am enrolled still (long story,
hopefully final meeting with administrative division
tomorrow. Current prediction: I'm not enrolled any more.)


I have read most of the student and mentor faq.

Right, same here.

Without paying, _I_ decide, where I help. :)

I didn't know, that OpenPGP integreates with kerberos. I
surely like that idea.
(My last contacts with x509 were not so nice. Maybe I just
got the wrong HOWTOs.)

I don't really have 3 months full time fot the soc.
That and the enrollment issue excludes me really.

(and I doubt, that spnego alone will get through as a
single job. It doesn't feel "big" enough.)
