    5 Welcome! Whether you're here because of [wiki:GSoC  Summer of Code (SOC)] or just want to scratch an itch to hack, we invite you to peruse our projects and ask about them on the [wiki:TBR/Website/RTEMSMailingLists  RTEMS mailing list] or [wiki:Developer/IRC IRC].  If you plan to submit a proposal to do something for the RTEMS Project as part of a SOC, see [wiki:GSoC/GettingStarted  Getting Started for SoC Students]. RTEMS projects span kernel hacking, adding support for a new board (BSP), improving the development environment, developing tests, and more.
     5Welcome!

RTEMS projects span kernel hacking, adding support for a new board (BSP), improving the development environment, developing tests, and more. You should look through the projects and see if any look promising to you, and then ask questions preferably on the devel mailing list about the ones that interest you. The current open projects list may need to update slightly for work that has been done, or that is not desired any more. If you're interested in a category of projects but no specific ones, you may also inquire about other ideas from the community within that category.

    77If you want to get your feet wet with RTEMS then check out our [wiki:Developer/SmallProjects small projects page] where you can find projects that require little coding skill and are appropriate for those new to RTEMS or open source software projects. If you are interested in one of these projects but are not able to code and test it yourself, consider sponsoring one of the core RTEMS developers to do it for you. Volunteering or sponsoring is how things get done -- users keep RTEMS development alive!

    9 Most of these projects will take between a few weeks and a few months of effort by a person who is familiar with the general use of GNU/Linux and GNU tools.  Many RTEMS projects are done by student or volunteer coders, so we try to define small projects or subtasks that can be completed and committed individually. Most of the projects are feasible as a [wiki:GSoC  Summer of Code] project.  Since some projects have multiple steps, students should work with prospective mentors to define the scope of work in their proposal.  Similarly, some projects might be a starting point for a class project or graduate thesis.

We generally underspecify our project descriptions for students on purpose. The scope that can be accomplished in the timeframe varies depending on individual student experience and skills. So, we like to let the students explore the projects and discuss with potential mentors in order to shape the proposal in a way that suits the student's and mentors' interests with a scope that is appropriate.
