     16If you are looking for project ideas for [ ESA SOCIS], then we would like to highlight some projects which we believe are particularly relevant to the space community.
     18 *  [wiki:RTEMS_Test_Coverage  Test Coverage Analysis] - Improve coverage by adding more test cases. Eliminating dead code and reaching 100% coverage helps reduce the likelihood of new and recurrent bugs.
     19 *  Simulator Updates - This is a new idea for a project and has not been described beyond what is here. Ask on the rtems-devel mailing list for more advice. The RTEMS Project relies heavily on multiple FOSS simulators including qemu and skyeye. We have multiple BSPs which are tested on simulators. Each BSP will need to be tested against the current release and development version of each simulator. If there is a problem, then the issue will have to be identified (possibly using something like git bisect) and the student will have to fix it in the simulator. As an example of this, we believe some ARM BSPs which worked on older versions of Skyeye no longer work on the current version. In some cases, the RTEMS Project is carrying unmerged patches for a simulator (at least qemu m68k and arm) which need to be updated to their development head and submitted. You will try to get the simulator developers to include RTEMS hello world and ticker executables for BSPs their simulator supports in their simulator tests to avoid future breakage. And you will ensure that the scripts in rtems-testing/sim-scripts are working for the latest version of the simulator. Please ask questions. This is a broad project.
     21There may be other projects on this page which are of interest to the space community. If you are interested in one that is properly sized, email us and ask.
     23SMP improvements are important to the space community but, to the best of our knowledge, there is no free simulator for the LEON3 which is the primary target for this community.
