The RTEMS Project has previously participated in the Google Code-In program
high school students. We have gotten good work done. However, this program
more community involvement than GSoC. GSoC is a handful of college students
doing large projects. GCI is a lot of high school students doing small (1-2
These are tasks which anyone using RTEMS could guide and evaluate.
The past few years we have declined to participate because we could not
get enough users committed. This resulted in a burden on a handful of
people like Gedare, Jennifer, Chris, and myself.
This is a good program but unless a significant number of folks using
RTEMS step up, we will be pragmatic and decline again.
