Developing LAN Sync

I’ve been lurking around ownCloud since a while. I’ve been wanting the LAN Sync feature in ownCloud since a while. I studied the solution in Dropbox and possible improvements for a college course. Read the report here. Is there still interest for implementing it?

I’d like to work on it. Anyone else interested to join me? If anyone has any tips on how to go about doing this, I’d really appreciate them.
