These projects have no specific relationship with our project, but  
they are similar in some ways and so may be of interest. We sometimes  
exchange ideas with the designers of some of these projects,  
especially on the p2p-hackers mailing list.

the Twisted Python project. fluidinfo hasn't released any source code.
