     4'''Status:''' No work performed.
     6'''Possible Mentors:''' [wiki:User:JoelSherrill  Joel Sherrill]
     8'''Introduction:''' [| Rosetta OS  Joel Sherrill] has identified the need for an OS independent, freely available POSIX compatibility test suite which could be used by a variety of free OS developers working on Linux, *BSD, RTEMS, and MINIX. 
     10'''Goal:''' Have a free test suite that is cross-platform and OS independent to be used by various POSIX compliant OS teams to measure compliance and cross-platform compatibility.
     12'''Requirements:''' The person(s) tackling this project must be familiar with POSIX and able to grapple with a variety of build systems.  The test suite must run on GNU/Linux and multiple RTEMS BSPs (e.g. powerpc/psim, sparc/sis, and i386/pc386) as a minimum first step.
     14'''Resources:''' There are existing test suites available for individual projects like glibc to draw from as a starting point.  You would work to provide a framework to integrate these existing suites with minimal modifications into a unified whole and a single report highlighting defects.  You would also have to identify deficiencies in the compliance coverage.  We anticipate that after integrating the various existing test suites there will be a need for new tests. 
     17 *  [| Rosetta OS  Joel Sherrill] members who identified this need.
