Miscellaneous Sections

As the project progresses, you will need to add build instructions, etc and this page will evolve from a project description into a HOWTO.

Roadmap for ConcurrencyKit?

A leading contender for this project is the ConcurrencyKit? (ck). ck works on the 32-bit x86 architecture, so a first step would be to try compiling ck with rtems for pc386 and run a sample application under QEMU. Once a sample application is working, the next step would be to get as much of the ck regression suite to run as possible. Beyond that are many possible directions. Potential students should ask on the mailing list and work with potential mentors to design a project that suits their abilities and goals.
