The project is aimed at improving the mips and mipsel ports. My implication in the project will therefore reflect the needs of the team that have been working on the project before me. Starting with the to-do list, I will be able to gain knowledge of the issues and objectives that need to be adressed. As I work on the project I will acquire deeper understanding of it and will eventually be able to contribute in a more creative way; the ultimate form of my participation would be finding and fixing bugs that have not been recorded in the past. I hope to achieve that last step.
