Description (last modified by Joel Sherrill)

Some Points that should be added to the wiki:History/Timeline. Please add points to the list where someone else might add a date and cross points that have been added to the wiki page.

Most of the original list has been suggested by Joel here: https://lists.rtems.org/pipermail/devel/2020-April/059313.html

  • Any cool non-space programs folks can admit to?
  • Any EPICS users have interesting discoveries or deployments to add?
  • When were some ports added?
  • When were some interesting/popular BSPs added: Zyng, Leon3, gba, etc
    • FWIW the original PC BSP was based on DJ Delorie's go32 and pre-dates the git history. I did that on a single PC (486 with 32 MB RAM). I couldn't run X11 and compile at the same time. I had to reboot to test. Yes it was uphill both ways back in those days. :)
  • When were some of the original ports/BSPs removed?
    • mvme135/136 was first BSP
    • i386 was second port
    • i960 was last of original 3 ports
  • Interesting features? Like libnetworking, libbsd, shell, dynamic loading?
  • The Cygnus floppy mailing: https://ftp.rtems.org/pub/rtems/people/joel/CygnusFloppyAugust1995/
  • Details for addition of SMP
  • move to OSU OSL
  • scientific discoveries like the particle discovered by an Atlas detector at CERN (not added) or the famous gamma ray burst detected by Fermi (added as example)
