Hi Saurav,

Lurchi just pasted a very interesting patch (that will deserve a longer
look and reply from me later) a few hours ago that is to change the
GNUnet event loop so that it can run on top of tokio (or others).  I
think this is the model we should probably strive for, and maybe we can
then use this foundation to do bindings for many GNUnet subsystems
reasonably quickly.

If Lurchi has the time, it would be great if we could have a Mumble chat
about this topic after I'm back in Rennes and before the GSoC deadline,
so IIRC 28.3-2.4. would be the timeframe.  People I'd definitively like
to have are Jeff, Lurchi, Lynx, you and myself, but more would be
welcome.  Jeff: can you coordinate off-list to find a good time for
this?  Then we can polish our design/plan together and give Saurav some
more feedback for the GSoC proposal at the same time.

Happy hacking!
