It is.  What are you interested in?  Running MirageOS for _XXX_ (maybe
this XXX should be done by you, then) ;)

As mentioned on this list earlier, there's also
http://canopy.mirage.io/Projects/logging and
http://canopy.mirage.io/Projects/topkg (likely incomplete lists).  I
consider the logging and topkg porting to be rather boring tasks not
very suitable for beginners because you don't learn much.

Rather jump into the cold water and implement a protocol or application
of your choice (graphql!?!).
