Hi, I've written this post to the freebsd-hackers@ mailing list, but I think it belongs here better. While I appreciate it's very short before the GSOC application deadline, I'd like to ask how the resonance to such a proposal would be, and how the chances to finding a mentor for that project stand.
--- Begin Message ---Hi! First of all, I would like to introduce myself: My name is Fabian Freyer, I am a physics student at the TU Berlin where I have been working as a FreeBSD Sysadmin for about 3 years. I am fluent in C and python and am interested in OS development; in fact I have been working on a toy operating system and boot loader as a side project for a while now. I enjoy playing CTFs and am working on my skills at reading and writing x86, amd64 and arm assembly. I have not yet participated in a GSOC due to other projects, but would like to participate this year. I started using bhyve with libvirt around a year ago to play around with, and have been using it as my main supervisor on server and development systems since; especially the debugging interface has proven useful to me on many occasions. I could imagine working on one or more of the following projects, since these are all features I would like to see in bhyve: 1) Implementing suspend / resume / snapshot behaviour for bhyve vm's 2) Going further from 1) implementing porcelain for migrating zvol-backed bhyve guests using zfs-send and moving state between hypervisors 3) Working on better libvirt support for bhyve. However, I haven't yet had much contact with hypervisor code. I have started looking into SimpleVisor  and the usr.sbin/bhyve/ source. I would greatly appreciate some guidance in that direction.
