Migration of TIPC in to FreeBSD

Postby tmulkar » 03 Nov 2011, 08:25

Hello All,

I am intrested in the migration of TIPC to FreeBSD. I am very new to opensource development and to FreeBSD for that matter.

I am working with guidelines given in the http://tipc.sourceforge.net for this migration and currently understanding TIPC protocol and how it works on the Linux platform.

Is there any study performed earlier on the subject? if yes, can someone point me to the results?


Regards,
Tushar

This may also be helpful to create a proper port for it. Ideally patches should be done upstream but in case that's not possible the ports system allows you to add FreeBSD specific patches to the port.
