I have been a mentor for Sichen last year. He has done some driver
support for the core RTEMS BSP of the BBB last year and he ported the
necessary libbsd drivers to use a USB WiFi dongle on that board. He also
put a lot of work into the encrypted WiFi support.

I think the year before Punit has worked on the BBB BSP.

Like Joel already said, the core BBB is quite well supported. But there
are still some drivers like CAN, Ethernet or USB OTG (to name a few)
that could be implemented. I've posted an update to the ticket on BBB
(#2891) some weeks back.

There are also still two projects regarding the WiFi support that could
be done. The BBB is a really good platform for that. That would be the
tickets #3222 and #3223.

You can find the tickets linked on the open projects page in the wiki.
