I am interested in working on packaging based on funding. However, the  
FreeRDPv2 + Guacomole upstream part of the work (porting Guacomole to  
FreeRDP v2, not sure of its current status upstream) is a bit  
off-topic for me. I can help getting stuff into Debian, once patches  

I can recommend the Thincast.AT (in Austria) people (Bernhard  
Miklautz, Martin Fleisz, etc.) when it comes to working on FreeRDP and  
integrations of FreeRDP.

For Guacomole, I'd recommend dropping FreeRDP v1.1 support totally and  
adapting the API calls to FreeRDP v2.0 (which is in rc4 these days).
