Since you already have a working RTEMS environment, it would be a great
idea to start looking at the source code organization of riscv bsps ( It would also be helpful to
find some smaller issues (maybe in the documentation) and try to send
patches for that. Submitting patches for smaller issues is a great idea to
become familiar with the code contribution process. The documentation for
riscv bsps can be found at

You can also utilize this time to read up on the Beagle-V fire
documentation and the prior FreeBSD efforts to support that board.

Could you please provide guidance on this. Additionally, is there any

Feel free to ask about anything you find interesting (or confusing) while
going through the source code and the documentation. Especially with the
documentation, if something confuses you it likely confuses other people
too, it can be a place to make a great contribution!

The mailing list is the best place to discuss longer questions, and the
discord channel is better for quick help from people who are signed in. The
discord channel has a subset of the RTEMS developers on it, the mailing
list has a wider audience.

Good luck with the GSoC application!

Best regards,
