Yes, I want to work on NetBSD Support for LTP. LTP is really a good platform to

Last year, I was working on POSIX Compliance as Google Summer of Code project

Thanks for pointing me these links. It is really helpful to me.
I would love to contribute to LTP as well as NetBSD(Open POSIX Test Suite).
