My name is John, and I was interested in doing Google Summer of Code for
FreeBSD this Summer. I am currently interested in writing a virtual
machine execution language. A rough draft of my proposal can be found
on the website for GSoC 2014 (I am not exactly sure how to get to it
from the outside though, sorry), however the brief description of my
project is to specify and implement a domain specific language to start
a virtual machine, execute given commands, and store the results of the
given command. Then, using a text comparison tool (maybe something
similar to `diff'), compare the obtained output to the expected output.
I was currently thinking that this would mainly be used for doing
repeated testing of software on FreeBSD running in a virtual machine,
however I was interested to see if anyone had any ideas for other uses
or applications for this language so that I could focus on making it as
useful as possible for what people would actually be using it for, or if
anyone had any other comments or suggestions?
I was also wondering if anyone would be interested in mentoring me for
my project this summer?
Finally, as I am new to this mailing list, if this is not the correct
place to ask this question or anything else like that please let me know
so I can move my question to the correct place.
