Progress Update 2 (Week 3)
Close to the end of Week 3, I would like to update that
I have completed the code modifications that were required in the kernel space.
src/sys/kern/kern_exec.c , src/sys/kern/vfs_syscalls.c ,

In the matter of organising my repository (pointed out by Christos Zoulas),
I have mirrored The NetBSD source in my github repository as a separate branch.
However, I am using a main branch as a staging area for the TNF mirror,
and will make commits to it once I can build the kernel and pass initial tests.
I hope this is alright.

My plan for the coming weeks is to go through the atf(7) and mdoc(7) man pages,
in order to write test cases and document the work.
