I wouldn't mind implementing ARINC653 or ARINC653-p4 for RTEMS. The
problem would be that the specs aren't available. The way I
interpreted Joel's response to my ARINC 653 question mail was that the
paravisualization project would allow ARINC653 compatibility in
combination with RTEMS simply because POK is ARINC653 compliant. This
would allow some partitions to use ARINC653 and one (or more?)
partitions to run and use RTEMS.

Augh, it's always hard for me to think of a project (definitely on
such a short notice, sorry!). I have the idea of porting (µ)AFDX
(AIRBUS implementation of ARINC 664) to RTEMS. But this is one of
those ideas that are hard to realize because there's no free (µ)AFDX
stack available and no specification available to implement a stack.

You are right, a great chuck of the AIO calls have been implemented
already (apart from aio_suspend(), for some reason). As for the RTEMS
tester system, I have checked the wiki you've linked in the email but
I'm not sure if I'd be fit for those projects. I'm not quite sure what
the "Site and User Profile" project is about. Is it about realizing an
error checking application for configurations so the user is sure
their configurations are right? The "Testing Database" project is
pretty straightforward. I haven't worked with Python actively thus far
and my last database class was 2 years ago so I'd have to do some
additional learned of Python/SQL apart from doing the actual project.
If the priority of either test projects is high I'll do that. But if
somebody does care about TIPC I'll gladly port it to RTEMS. But once
again that is if priority is not a matter and if somebody does care
about TIPC.

Kind regards,
