Greetings

this is a good initiative, I like it.

Also, it seems to me, the content of the site can be enhanced by getting-started matherials of relevant projects, or (I prefer), MOOC project about microkernels with basics, history, architectures and examples based on different projects. Also, the final (graduate) practice of this project could be participation in GSOC or just resolving important issues in bug trackers. In my opinion, such course should be sufficient to turn any systems-friendly developer (student) to microkernel practitioner/developer/enthusiast capable to solve engineering issues of open source projects.

Several years ago we recorded some lectures bout the L4Re and Genode (Thanks Bjoerd, Norman, Udo):

And of course there are many addition materials in any other projects, so, I do not think that it will be complicated to make joint course.

Finaly, about the diffusion of microkernels, I think it is important to see how all (and other) projects can be used to solv actual issues, thus, examples of application could also enchance the content (and impact) of the site.
