Proposal 2: 
Create, complete, test and polish a generalized browser plugin

FreeNX users have frequently asked for the feature to be able to 
create (Free)NX sessions from a browser. There is a "moznx" browser 
plugin — but it does not work well currently (its maintainer had to 
reduce the amount of work he puts into it due to personal reasons, 
but he is still available for mentoring it).
Essential parts of this project:
* the new "browserNXplugin" must work at least for Firefox and 
  Konqueror on Linux 
* the new "browserNXplugin" must work for Firefox on Windows 
* the new "browserNXplugin" must provide a reliable way to establish 
  remote NX session as the current "moznx" utility does 
* the new "browserNXplugin" may re-use the current moznx code or
  start completely new 

Hint: the task can possibly be solved by modifying and polishing the 
      "moznx" plugin by Lawrence Roufail.

Mentors: Aaron J. Seigo, Kurt Pfeifle
