Brief comments - I help organize the Flight Software Workshop (10+ years), and it was kicked off by Chris Krupiarz (the workshop was his idea) at JHUAPL, who I believe is also the Flight Software Lead for the Parker Solar Probe.
The Parker Solar Probe was presented several years ago at the workshop, and it has been discussed several times in that context. RTEMS is used on many space missions, and is perhaps the best example of 'Open Source' in space.
So yes, the 'RTEMS space page' could be in a more prominent place. I would imagine that there are other missions that are not listed on that link.

Missed the TBR. But as long as there is no better place ...
I hope that I didn't start a discussion about the site just now ;-)
