Yes, I wrote a open source web login client for our school, which can be downloaded from http://dev.bjtu.edu.cn/~ideal/pycat. I added a patch to ailurus for calculating cache size more precisely(http://github.com/ideal/Ailurus), and I am working to let ailurus support Fedora better. I maintain the mirror site at http://mirror.bjtu.edu.cn, which is now the official mirror of archlinux and ubuntu. I translated LXDE to zh_CN, and wrote a patch for mplayer to show Chinese characters correctly in tag info.
