+(TODO list after discussion 11.05.2009)
+* shrink tc/brctl/ip
+ tc/brctl seem like fairly large things to try and tackle in your timeframe,
+ and i think people have posted attempts in the past. adding additional
+ options to ip though seems reasonable.
+* add tests for some applets
+* implement POSIX utilities and audit them for POSIX conformance. then
+ audit them for GNU conformance. then document all your findings in a new
+ doc/conformance.txt file while perhaps implementing some of the missing
+ you can find the latest POSIX documentation (1003.1-2008) here:
+ and the complete list of all utilities that POSIX covers:
+ The first step would to generate a file/matrix what is already archived
+ (also IPV6)
+* ntpdate/ntpd (see ntpclient and openntp for examples)
+* implement 'at'
+* rpcbind (former portmap) or equivalent
+ so that we don't have to use -o nolock on nfs mounts
+* check IPV6 compliance
+* generate a mini example using kernel+busybox only (+libc) for example
+* more support for advanced linux 2.6.x features, see: iotop
+ most likely there is more
+* even more support for statistics: mpstat, iostat, powertop....
