Hey Bernard,

Our slow response response does not reflect our excitement in your interest :)  Its more a reflection of that Nathan and I have little babies.  Your 3G network experience would be interesting to tap into, we've played around some with OpenBTS, mostly to understand the vulnerabilities of things like IMSI catchers and to test how various filtering could be implemented.

Sounds like working on Orbot would be a good project for you, if that's your dominant interest right now.  We are also working right now on making a complete OpenPGP app for Android based on gnupg.  We have the first ported version of gnupg running on Android, so the next steps are to start wrapping it in Java and making a good interface for all of the useful functions, following APG where it makes sense.  Right now, we need complete mocks of the whole interface, if you are interested in that.

There are so many things to work on, really I think the best thing would be to work on the stuff that you are most interested in.
