For pragmactic reasons, we are interested in patches, not very much in 
projects. Be assured that if you post a working UPnP announce plugin 
patch, and address the comments from the developpers then, it will be 

But we have grown wary of the "I would like to do this, is anyone 
interested?" posts, and this accounts for the lack of active response. 
UPnP is probably the second most common subject to SUSE specfiles.

Good luck with your implementation,
