Re: Weekly Report of Porting musl to RISC-V Project #5
by Alan Pillay
What is the current status of musl on RISC-V?
This was the last time I heard about it, but it has been many months since.

Interested in GSoC 2017
by Yogesh Mahajan
First of all congratulation for getting selected in GSoC 2017. I'm Yogesh
from Mumbai and pursuing my Undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering
at IIT Bombay. I am mostly interested in hardware design than software but
can work with software section too. I have overlooked the projects
proposals for GSoC 2017 and I would like to work on open-source IPs or
I am very comfortable with VHDL and have completed a number of small
projects as part of the curriculum as well as the hobby. Some of my recent
hardware projects are as follows:
1. Simple Multicycle RISC processor for FPGA (Complete and Tested)
2. 6 Stages Pipelined RISC processor for FPGA with UART
bootloader (Complete and Tested)
3. Superscalar RISC processor (Active)
4. Hardware abstraction layer to use ADC and DAC on FPGA/ CPLD (Complete ad
5. UART peripheral for FPGA/ CPLD (Complete and tested)
I have used Altera Cyclone IV FPGA/ MAX V CPLD for testing above projects.
So, how should I proceed for GSoC's application? Are there any extra topics
I need know before getting started?

I'm a third year Indian engineering student majoring in electronics and computer engineering looking to gain some experience in open source development. I came to know your organisation and I'm very interested in contributing to this org . Can you provide me an idea of where exactly to start since I'm new to this ?? Thanks in advance.
