Awesome! Make sure you are on the list here.

As I mentioned on another thread this morning, CTF and TCF are IMO very
important things
for RTEMS to support. Sebastian was commenting how the tracing would help
If I had to assign a priority to the two, I guess I would put CTF first
because it fills a gap.
TCF is also important but we do have debugging now but TCF might offer some
capability we don't have.

Given the current status of libbsd, I am not sure what the goal of it would
be. I think
originally it was proposed as an alternative way to get many BSD
capabilities onto

Can someone comment?
