Hi Kanika, I CC'ed two lists and the mentors of projects. Thank you for your interest in the project.
> I seek guidance in choosing the suitable sub-project in Xen according to my > skill set. 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 > I wish to begin my contribution as soon as possible.

Stefano and Edgar, are around I believe For practical reasons: * Please sign up to the minios-de...@lists.xenproject.org or email@example.com (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 From: KANIKA SAINI <kanika16...@iiitd.ac.in> Date: Wednesday, 14 February 2018 at 17:25 To: Lars Kurth <lars.ku...@citrix.com> 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 CSE, IIITD Class of 2020 _______________________________________________ Xen-devel mailing list Xenfirstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.xenproject.org/mailman/listinfo/xen-devel
