I am interested in participating in an Outreachy internship by working on the project “Test the OCaml compiler with random tests and a reference interpreter” listed on the Outreachy website.
I studied Haskell programming last summer and worked on a Haskell study project this semester. I am very interested to learn more about the implementation of programming languages and to help improve the OCaml language.
I read the instructions, built the OCaml compiler from the source code, registered on the bug tracker under the same nickname as on the forum and would like to start working on any issue as soon as possible. If possible, I would like to start with https://caml.inria.fr/mantis/view.php?id=7548 or https://caml.inria.fr/mantis/view.php?id=6955 issue. I’m not sure if I need to somehow assign myself to the task or the maintainers usually do it.
I will be glad to any advice and recommendations. Thank you in advance.
