There is just 2 contributors to CVS per date.

Just barely started with scheduling, and got one softint (sch$resched).
Some structures and variables.

I am doing something on a "CPU"-library, figuring out how to implement IPLs.
Need suggestions.

Currently looking into:

Logicals (barely started, got minimal stuff tested in userland): on hold
while doing other stuff.

Fixing the currently broken md (have not tested since) and smp support.
(I can not test, because I have no SMP box available)

Figuring out how to implement system calls/services with more than 6 params.
Need suggestions.
We may need someone who has done 386 assembly before to implement this.

Figuring out what to do next with scheduling/process/timing.

Needless to say, we are a bit understaffed regarding the kernel.

Some of this is stated in the freevms/linux/2do file.

Suggestions:

Could someone look into how to implement memory management?
(I suppose it must be changed in it's entirity, but we must have compatibility
wrappers)
