A couple of months back the place I work for had a number of issues with 
NFS. We tried to find someone to work with us and we were offering to pay. 
After weeks searching I was unable to find someone. A few weeks later We got 
in touch with Mohan Srinivasan who graciously spent time during his vacation 
to help us.

Although I believe our problems were in a good deal related to our own 
network quality the state of the NFS server seems to need some considerable 
work. Also we found a couple of additional bugs with the client which made 
things even worse.

So.. if there is someone who is willing to work on NFS.. as a contract there 
needs to be a way for companies willing to fund it to get in touch with such 
person(s). Perhaps there could be a list/forum where people familiar with 
internals such as NFS, can post their availability and willingness to do 
contract work so companies willing to fund development in a particular area 
can get in touch with the right people.
