CE Linux Forum sponsors Embedded Linux projects
In 2011, the CE Linux Forum's CELF Open Project Proposal process will make more than $200,000 available to members of the Linux community for enhancing Embedded Linux systems. Unlike events such as Google's Summer of Code, the Open Project Proposal process doesn't call on developers to apply with their projects; the CE Linux Forum instead accepts proposals from any member of the public – although it is possible to suggest a developer for the implementation of a proposal, this isn't a requirement.
After the proposal deadline, the CE Linux Forum, which is now part of the Linux Foundation, plans to select the most interesting submissions, obtain project bids and then fund the implementation of these projects. Proposals chosen in early 2010 included the introduction of a LZO compression feature for SquashFS, bootchart support for Busybox and improved ARM support for U-Boot.
