How well do you know both VMS and Linux Internals?
It could be useful to know both, so you will have at least a sort of
feeling of how to get from A to B.
Suggestion (made on a coarse hunch)(a sort of spiral development process)
Data Structure Definitions.
Other basic stuff. (PALcode-things)
Scheduling and Time Support
Life of a Process
Input/Output (not on the first iterations)
Life of the System (not on the first iterations)
I have a feeling things will be a bit iterative, since I doubt everyone
will sit down and write all include-files, and then there will be
made complete things of everything else.
As a pilot study before the paper, why not start on scheduling just to get
the ball going/tip over the first domino?
