Being accepted into GSOC with RTEMS is very exciting. This has been possible due to the constant support of Joel & Cynthia. A special thanks to Gedare for an in depth criticization of my proposal, which helped me improve it.

I'll be working this summer on the 'Unified APIs' Project. The main task required for this project is to ensure that in areas where BSP support capabilities and APIs have evolved over the years, all the code there is moved to the latest version and any older implementations and inconsistencies across targets and BSPs are killed. The various components of this project are :
	* Generalize the PIC interrupt support in sparc to support any other simple vectored architecture.
	* Spot discrepancies in file usage in various BSPs with PCI support.
	* Review/Cleanup header files, which are publicly installed by different BSPs , since this is the area having the most variation in coding style.
	* Unify naming styles, used for the same files in different BSPs, so as to have consistent file names for the same supporting capability.
My full length proposal can be found at http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/proposal/review/google/gsoc2013/vipulnayyar/1 , and https://docs.google.com/document/d/1oDp4E9_Wof4wBJaMJJIFoPqtu5fbTdsKwEcz-5qkazw/edit?usp=sharing

As suggested by my mentor, I believe community input would act as an integral part of my work. So, I'm looking forward enthusiastically to working with you guys.

Hoping for a great Summer !!!
