Re: [MirageOS-devel] New developer would like to contribute to Mirage project

Welcome, and thanks for helping!

We (very recently) started a list of projects for new contributors: 

The list is quite new and incomplete but we will try to improve it over time. Feel free to pick one of the project if you like it!

An other source of inspiration for contributions is to:
- pick a mirage-related library you are interested in
- look at the list of issues in the repo of that library (some higher-level issues are in the mirage bug tracker: https://github.com/mirage/mirage/issues)
- pick one which seem interesting (usually new features idea, or you can start by a simple bug fix)
- comment on the issue to tell the repository owner you are interested to work on that.

Hopefully, this will lead to an interesting discussion with the the repository owner who will help you to start contributing in the right direction.
Hope this help and welcome again,

Hi, guys

My name is Mark Li. I am a third-year undergraduate student who majors in Computer Science at University of California, Los Angeles. I have strong interest in functional programming language, especially OCaml. I am working with my programming language professor to improve an online OCaml practicing website called âCamlBack": http://camlback.cs.ucla.edu/. I have also done an OCaml project called âAlpacaâ, which is a type-safe, fully asynchronous and encrypted SOCKS5 proxy using Core and Async library: https://github.com/marklrh/Alpaca. I also contribute an async version of DNS resolution to Mirageâs OCaml-DNS.

I believe contributing to an open-source OCaml project is the best way to make OCaml community better and I hope I can learn lots of knowledge from it. Although I am just a third-year college student with limited ability, I would love to contribute to the Mirage open-source project and will try to do my best.
