Xen Project Team Project List Small Code Contributions Contact Information
Hypervisor, mini-os and other core technology projects
Hypervisor

Skills needed:
Linux/BSD, C, scripting
Outreach Program Projects An easy way to get started (and show that you can set up the Xen Development Environment, fix an issue, build and test Xen, submit a patch, etc.) is to address a suitable number of Coverity Scan issues. Ask on xen-devel@ for a set of suitable Coverity issues. Note that this does not require any access to the Coverity scan results. Open bugs to fix under the Small Code Contribution Requirement can also be found on bugs.xenproject.org.

Also note that to do Hypervisor development, you will need to have the correct hardware. You can find more information on how to check whether you have the right hardware at Outreachy/Hypervisor.
