Re: [MirageOS-devel] [Xen-devel] Prepping for GSOC 2014 [URGENT] - deadline Feb 14 2014

Hi all,

I created http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/GSoc_2014 based on the project list

Unless you guys step up, I will move all projects that have no
* level of difficulty
* skills needed
* outcomes
into http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/GSoc_2014#List_of_projects_that_need_more_work

I made a start on this and will do more on the weekend and/or monday. I will also sort, such that easy projects come first.

I am about to submit the application in the next two hours

         Sounds too hard for a GSoC to me. Would need fleshing out in any
Malcolm made a prototype for this on the first day of the Hackathon.  It
can disappear.

       * CPU/RAM/PCI diagram tool

         Does this not already exist somewhere?
Not as far as I (or my ability to google) am aware.

My furrowing into hwloc interacting with Xen and libxc is a start to all
of this, but it is still very much in my copious free time and there is
more than enough other work which could be done if someone were interested.
OK, left in place.

This could conceivably be done under another umbrella such as the Linux
one too, since it seems generic.


For native Linux, hwloc kinda already does this already - certainly the
CPU and PCI bits.
That's what I meant by "does this not alreayd exist somewhere". So it
sounds like extending hwloc is the right answer, the blurb should
reflect this and list the specific things which it is lacking.

Can you update the description please?

   Under Xen there are quite a few areas needing
improvement, which will require active development work.
