In July 2023, Yan-Hao Wang began a summer internship with the Foundation to work a variety of tasks. Here is a list of some of the planned work.
- Build an online man page editor
- Update FreeBSD jenkins-tinderbox
- Add test cases for userspace tools in /bin, /sbin, /usr/bin, /usr/sbin
- Survey and develop an “expert system” for FreeBSD man pages and documents
- Fix libxo issues, and write applicable tests
- Survey roadmap for developing RPI4 and IPV6 TODOs
The “expert system” for FreeBSD man pages and documents will be a best-effort, proof-of-concept task that will include importing FreeBSD documents such as man pages and the Handbooks into a vector database so that large language models like ChatGPT can “read” them in order to offer better answers when queried with FreeBSD-related question.
