There are definitely other good projects to consider that haven't had
as much attention as the BB projects. Also note that you should
complete and begin to
prepare your proposal immediately. Your best bet is to find a project
matching your interest/skills that has a suitable amount of
information posted about it, since you are not likely to get a lot of
feedback on your proposal before the deadline.

For the BB projects, I suspect the Framebuffer or CAN would be good
directions to push. Framebuffer support exists in a few scattered
BSPs, but we could use a consistent approach and more uniform API for
framebuffer devices. For CAN there was a project a couple years ago
that made some progress in simulating CAN with Qemu, but never got to
the point of getting a CAN package to integrate easily with RTEMS.
There was a follow-up proposal by the same student for the project,
but we did not accept it [1].
