In this year, my proposal for lowRISC has been accepted as part of Google Summer of Code, so I'd like to introduce myself and the project I will work on. You may have already discussed with me on the mailing lists, though :-) The goal of my project is completing a RISC-V port of musl (http://www.musl-libc.org/), mentored by Rich Felker. I hope the project could benefit the RISC-V community. Since musl has been used by some lightweight/embedded Linux distributions including Alpine Linux and OpenWrt, the project will be attractive especially for embedded system developers, I guess. The project aims not only adding RV-specific part of the libc, but also integrating it into the toolchain. I also consider some improvements to the kernel side interacting with libc (e.g. migrating compare-and-swap emulation from system calls to vDSO functions) if possible. For details, you can get my proposal on GitHub: https://github.com/omasanori/gsoc2016-proposal I'm definitely new to the community though I have had interest in both RISC-V and musl for years. Nice to meet you! Any comments would be appreciated. I hope you will get excited at this project too. -- Masanori Ogino
