Apply some upstream patches to an already-existing fork.

We're looking for somebody to take a fork of LindenLab's open source Second Life viewer ( [url removed, login to view] ) taken at 2.3 with some minor changes, and apply the current development to take it to 3.0.

Most of the improvements are already applied in the branch from 2.3, for this the requirement would just be to merge the more recent development into the branch to bring it up to 3.0 with our existing changes intact.

The changes are that the name of the product is different, and text within the product reflects this, some of the graphical assets have been modified to contain our logo.

The only change we would want to make from 3.0 is to remove a dialog box on the login page (that currently allows you to choose between "Advanced" and "Basic" mode) and have it always log in as "advanced".

If this project succeeds we will be looking for the winning bidder to regularly update the client, and probably make more advanced changes.
