# Name Blog URL IRC Nick Seneca LDAP ID Role Project 1 Project 2 Alternate Projects Notes Regarding Projects Project Approval
00 Chris Tyler http://blog.chris.tylers.info/ ctyler chris.tyler Professor libgcroots gdb (add reverse debugging support for AArch64) libgcroots (garbage collection root library) is used by sigscheme and uim (multilingual input library) and looks like a moderate task - needs arch/OS specific information about finding stack base. gdb reverse debugging support (which is currently unmaintained) works only on x86 at present but the porting work looks heavy but reasonable.

01 Hunter Jansen http://rawkamatic.github.io/opensource Student jsl snort fio, Snort is a weird case in that it doesn't seem to actually have any assembler code in it, so it could potentially be small; requires more investigation. JSL's asm looks to mainly be for a few platforms. CT: Snort is dead.package in Fedora since F14. Why? CT
02 Linpei Fan http://linpei.blogspot.ca/ Lilyaj lfan9 CPA Student
03 Adam Sharpe http://adamsharpe8.blogspot.ca/ ansharpe Student newlib avian
04 Omid Djahanpour http://odjahanpour.wordpress.com odjahanpour Student siege
05 Kieran Sedgwick http://sedgestuff.wordpress.com/ ksedgwick Student unrar-free LAME unrar-free presents more of a challenge, since it definitely has ASM code that needs to be made portable. LAME's debugger ASM code needs more research to understand. CT: LAME is not included in Fedora or Debian - why? CT
06 Gabriel Castro http://blog.gabrielcastro.ca gcastrolondono Student
07 Edwin Lum http://edwinlum.wordpress.com/ Lumed elum1 Student eigen3 drbd8 CT
08 Brendan Henderson http://paracr4ckbeginnings.wordpress.com/ paraCr4ck bdhenderson Student
09 Emmanuel Ho Fidelino http://sylask.wordpress.com/ ehofidelino Student krb5 polarssl CT: testing krb5 will require a lot of setup. Likewise, polarssl is a library and is not used directly but accessed by other software (power DNS, dislocker). How are you going to test your changes to these packages? Do they include test suites?
