I'm far from a graphics expert but would be willing to mentor this.
Hopefully someone with more graphics experience will also pop up.

For background research, see what documentation and BSD licensed code you
can find as examples. Also plan to use and likely update the graphics
packages in the RSB.

I don't if we have any good basic graphics tests without bringing in a
package. Might also be worth looking at a test that writes some basic

And a mouse might be a good bonus if things go well.

A hello world for this would be running code on a beagle and figuring out
how to debug. There was a Qemu from somewhere (Linaro?) that simulated one
and ran RTEMS would help your development if it has the graphics simulated.

As you flesh this out, you will need tickets.

I think I just outlined a project. :)
