Task Description

This task is repeatable and involves finding and fixing language problems in RTEMS code and supporting documents and web pages.

Directions for Students

Find and fix 5 spelling, grammar, or other English language errors in source comments within git://, docs produced from the rtems/doc directory within the RTEMS git repository, the web pages within, or this wiki. For fixes in the RTEMS git repository, submit a patch with the corrections. For the website, identify the page with the problem and its solution in the table below: only new problems count, so check this table before you submit a correction! For the wiki, make the fix directly yourself.
