This looks like a useful collection of software. The first
questions I have to ask are:
+ Is RTEMS a feasible target?
- Are there assumptions in the ROS SW that would
prevent it from running on RTEMS?
+ Does anyone at ros.org care?
+ Would anyone at ros.org want to co-mentor?
If they are interested and this is feasible, then it
is worth writing up as a project.
