Hi.  As far as I'm aware, nobody is actively working on DTLS for
GnuTLS.  It is a large project, and may involve changing critical
parts of GnuTLS, so it will have to be done on the next experimental
branch 1.5, or possibly as a completely separate project external to
gnutls (i.e., gnudtls).

Thank you!  If you want to start working on it, just go ahead.  If you
need help doing it, and can sponsor it financially, or know someone
who might, I'd be interested in doing the work.
