Hi Charles,

Thanks for your interest in the project. You are the first to apply for
it. This is an interesting project because it is not as easy as it sounds
since it involves also adding missing functionality in the kernel (for
example the realtime signal facility which has interesting performance
implications and requires careful design to do proper resource management). 
It also touches many different areas... Feel free to apply and I hope that
you get selected.
