Hello, all. As every year GNU participates as umbrella organisation at
Google Summer of Code. So if you willing to be a student or a mentor
feel free to discuss the ideas here. Just few ideas to start with:
-USB. It needs a lot of fixing and EHCI port.
-AHCI. Really needed
-Some other hardware which may contain something bootable. We will
probably have a network subsystem contributed by IBM before Summer so
making more cards to work would be a good project
-Multiboot mission. Port widespread payloads to multiboot (FreeBSD,
Linux, ...)
-New port. The best idea now is probably ARM. More info follow in
separate e-mail
-Better video cards support
-Native windows and ReactOS loading (not chainloading)
-Parted integration
-Booting time reductions by various means like using multicore and
parallely loading and decompressing
Have a look at
This list is only an entry point into discussion. Feel free to propose.
Also some of items may be too small for a SoC. They can be bundled together
