    4747[wiki:Developer/OpenProjects Open Projects] contains the open projects list for RTEMS.  It is by no means an all inclusive list and we are open to suggestions.  Submissions of ports to new architectures, new BSPs, new device drivers, and test improvements are always welcomed.

     53Please visit [wiki:Developer/OpenProjects Open Projects] to see if you can find a project that interests you. If you have any questions about the projects, feel free to ask on the email list or IRC. The project descriptions were usually written by someone with a high level of insight into the problem who would be happy to explain things in more detail to you.
     55We have provided a [ Google Docs template] for the Student Proposal. Feel free to copy it and invite potential mentors to review. Please be aware that this is NOT the official form to submit your proposal on. Your official application must be submitted through the GSOC Melange system. Periodically cut and paste your proposal into the student application form and save it in Melange. This avoids the last minute rush to do it. Typically the website is overloaded in the last few hours before the student proposal deadline.
     57We want you to be able to hit the ground running and are asking you to show that you can actually build RTEMS, modify it a little, and run samples. Please visit the GSoC Getting Started page for details.
     58Students working on code should require no special hardware. The development can all be done and tested using a GNU/Linux host (preferably RPM based). Between the simulators in gdb, skyeye, and qemu, there is plenty of simulated target hardware.
     60RTEMS is an operating system targeting embedded systems. All development is cross-platform, meaning that you develop on a host system and run programs on a target system. Some of the projects are focused on improving the user development experience. Eclipse has proven popular for cross embedded development and one of the suggested projects is to bring those capabilities to RTEMS.
     62RTEMS is designed to operate under tight resource restrictions. Some of the projects focus on breaking existing linkages between subsystems so those limits can be lowered further. Another area of effort is helping RTEMS fit into smaller systems.
     64Even though it is targeted to embedded systems, developers still expect as many features as possible. RTEMS provides a robust set of POSIX primitives and what is now known as the Classic API which provides hard real-time functionality. Some of the projects are focused on implementing a few missing pieces of POSIX functionality.
