What an offer. :)

The question from me is "what are you interested in?"  If your goal is
to transition a product line from pSOS+ to RTEMS, then focusing on
your own BSP is a critical item.  Otherwise, think of what you are

There are lots of areas to work on.  The 68k is not quite as obsolete
as you think.  The 683xx and ColdFire keep it plugging along.  The
is faster and sexier but it can be a pain to deal with.  

The only thing I have to say is do NOT violate the intellectual property
rights of ISI/WRS with respect to anything you work on.
