Hi Kanika,

I CC'ed two lists and the mentors of projects. Thank you for your interest in 
the project.

We have two sets of projects on 
https://www.outreachy.org/communities/cfp/xen-project/
* 3 around Unikraft (mentor: Simon the technical side, I on the process/people 
side). We are both based in UTC+1 - IRC is #unikraft
* 1 for Xen on ARM (mentors: Stefano & Edgar). Stefano is in UTC-8, Edgar is 
UTC-7 or 6 (can't quite recall) - IRC is #xendevel

Simon is unfortunately not around this week but will be next week.
Stefano and Edgar, are around I believe

For practical reasons:
* Please sign up to the minios-de...@lists.xenproject.org or 
xen-devel@lists.xenproject.org (as appropriate)
   (see http://lists.xenproject.org for instructions: if you use the "subscribe 
subject pattern" make sure you send the mail to 
minios-devel-requ...@lists.xenproject.org, ...) 
* Please double check time requirements: This is because in the past there 
frequently were issues with Outreachy and University course time requirements 
in particular with Universities from India. I believe that there will be extra 
checks later in the application process, which may require letters from your 
University. We had one case, where an applicant did a small project, but we 
were not allowed to accept her due to time requirements.
* Let us know timezone you are in and when you can hang out on IRC 
* Your registered IRC nickname (please register your nick - see 
https://www.xenproject.org/help/irc.html under Netiquette)

Note that my IRC nick is lars_kurth, Simon's is skuezer, Stefano's is 
sstabellini, and I am afraid I can't remember Edgar's

If you are interested in Unikraft
* Build the hello world unikraft app: see 
https://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Category:Unikraft & http://unikraft.neclab.eu/ 
and report back
* Familiarize yourself with the workflow at 
https://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Submitting_Xen_Project_Patches#How_to_Generate.2C_and_Submit_a_Xen_Project_Patch_to_MiniOS_and_Unikraft
 (please read the entire document) 

For the ARM project, I will let Stefano and Edgar decide.

Regards
Lars

Subject: Excited for Xen Project in Outreachy

Greetings, Lars.

I'm Kanika Saini and I'm super excited to begin contributing to Xen!

I seek guidance in choosing the suitable sub-project in Xen according to my 
skill set. I'm currently pursuing a course in Operating Systems and hence, have 
been gaining knowledge in kernel programming by short assignments like the 
implementation of a system call. I'm familiar with assembly programming in 
MIPS, ARM and x86 as well. 
About high-level programming - I have experience with Java and have used it for 
desktop applications and parallel programming.

There are certain projects listed on the project page and I'm looking for 
mentors' suggestion on what could be the best for both me and Xen. I have 
introduced myself on the #unikraft channel and I'm expecting a reply from the 
community.

I wish to begin my contribution as soon as possible. I request you to connect 
me to the mentors in case IRC is not the best way to get in touch with them.

Thank you!

Yours sincerely,
Kanika Saini
