Some possibilities that I think are feasible projects would be RTEMS
Testing, Test Coverage Analysis, Simulator_Updates, Compiling RTEMS
with CLANG, and Improvements to the RTEMS Source Builder.

Most of these projects will require coding at the level of scripting
or building/patching existing external projects.
