I realise that I am "late" to respond (although sadly I don't seem to have many competitors). I'm looking for bitcoin work on the side to augment my work and uni obligations, and might be interested in this.
I am a part-time PHP developer and Computer Science student, but I have no experience with Status.net. I would be happy to scan through the codebase given some more requirements, but I would need some more data on your projects. I have been a PHP developer for 4+ years as a hobby, but I recognise that I am a student and my hourly rate/quote would reflect this.
If you are still interested, feel free to contact me on this forum's PM system which I check regularly.
