    1818'''Goal:''' Support [http://www.parrot.org| Parrot] on [http://www.rtems.org| RTEMS].  With all due respect to the [http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Pigs_in_Spac Muppets], we want "BIRDS IN SPACE!"

    20 '''Requirements:''' You will need to have to feel comfortable tracking now small issues, providing clean solutions and getting them integrated into their appropriate code base.  Some issues will require modifications to the Parrot build system or [http://www.parrot.org| Parrot] itself.  Some may require augmenting RTEMS to make life easier for [http://www.parrot.org| Parrot]. A lot of this project will be building a test framework for Parrot on RTEMS and fixing what is broken.  We don't know how many tests will require investigation and debug but RTEMS is sufficiently POSIX compliant where we expect this to be minimal.  There may be places where [http://www.parrot.org| Parrot] can be tuned or "down sized" for embedded systems.  This should be investigated.

This can be further investigated but may turn out to be too large a project for a single Summer of Code project.
