Hello RTEMS Community!

My name is Matt, I’m a former US Army infantry officer, now back in school
pursuing a second bachelor’s in Computer Science at Oregon State

I am new to open source, but I am just completing my second (elective)
operating systems course and have a class in x86 assembly language under my
belt. I’m starting my first class in embedded programming at the end of the
month. (I’m excited!)

Based on the long-term participation of previous years’ GSoC students, I
see that this community is committed to stewarding the project into the
future. And I see that the work you do is literally out there among the
stars. That is what I’d call a legacy! I know that I could learn so much
from the community, and hopefully, with a lot of sweat, contribute
something as well.

One project in which I’m interested is #4328: “New APIs Added to POSIX
Standard (2021)”. I would be grateful if someone could help me understand
the current state of this effort and where it fits into the greater “POSIX
Compliance” effort (#2966). I notice in the “Small Projects” section there
is a task to flesh out the RTEMS POSIX User’s Guide. I thought that this
might be a good way for me to build up my understanding of RTEMS, prepare
me to better work on 4328, and add something along the way. Is that
something that would be helpful?

It’s nice to “meet” you all and I look forward to hearing back from you!
