Re: [MirageOS-devel] [GSoC'17] Interested in contributing to MirageOS

Hi Harshit! It's great to hear that you're interested in working on the project. I'm Mindy, one of the co-administrators (with Lars Kurth) for this round of GSoC and Outreachy.

Have you had any experience with OCaml or MirageOS yet? If not, I would recommend having a look at Real World OCaml, a free online book on the programming language, which is available at https://realworldocaml.org . We also have some MirageOS introductory material available at https://mirage.io/docs/ under the "getting started" header. Any problems you find in those documents would be great first contributions - you can find help on contributing at https://mirage.io/wiki/contributing . :)

On the specific projects you mention:

The `ssh` project has recently seen a lot of work from Christiano Haesbaert (although it's not yet released) - you might want to check with Christiano on the current status. You can also see the project at https://github.com/haesbaert/awa-ssh directly.

The `telnet` project got some contributions last year from Hannes Mehnert, who watches this list and hopefully can tell you about the current status. I think he can also update on the current status of `sasl`, as he's the maintainer of the XMPP library mentioned in the paragraph description from which some preliminary client code could be taken.

The `swim` project got a bit of initial work last year, which you can see at https://github.com/andreas/mirage-swim , but I haven't heard much about it since and there haven't been any contributions lately.

I'm not aware of any current or recent work on the tiny VM for easy load testing. I'll check with the mentor to see whether that project is still viable.
