|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.||CT|
|01||Hunter Jansen||http://rawkamatic.github.io/opensource||Student||jsl||snort||fio, jscoverage, zeromq, bowtie||EDIT: JSL upstream unresponsive, project code is currently very different from fedpkg code (all python vs all c). Snort has to be installed via wget and works on both architectures. Fio installs via yum and works fine on both. JSCoverage is a dead package, carried on to jsCover, a java project; all tests pass on both systems. ZeroMQ installs architecture specific packages on each via yum and works fine. Currently investigating Bowtie.||CT|
|02||Linpei Fan||http://linpei.blogspot.ca/||Lilyaj||lfan9||CPA Student|
|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|
|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?|
