Hi All,

Just joined the mailing list (as I will no doubt be calling on the
community's expertise in the near future).  I am looking to get my
hands dirty with some kernel development - mainly because I want to
improve my understanding of the kernel and I honestly believe that
getting involved will be a worthwhile investment of my time and will
also be highly educational.

Over the next coming months, I shall be undertaking a more structured
approach to studying and gaining familiarity with the kernel source.
I will also be looking to get involved in some simple patch
development (e.g., simple janitorial type jobs), such that I can gain
some experience of the patch development and submission process.  I am
aware that typically lists some of these types of
job and that the kernel project has plenty of documentation and tips
from veteran contributors concerning these topics.

Areas of particular interest to me include:
  - Industrial I/O
  - Device Driver Development
  - 'Real-Time' Systems
  - Time Synchronisation
  - Networking & Communication Protocols

If anyone knows of any newbie projects in these specific areas, then
it would be great to hear from you.

Lastly, the Kernel Newbies website seems to be unavailable at the
moment (Google last cached the site on 31 Jan 2020 01:49:1 UTC).  Any
idea when it will be available again?

Many Thanks,
Jack W.
