Hi Tanya,

Is it too late to get some smaller projects for XRay in there?

Here's two:

XRay Function Coverage Mode: Implementing an XRay mode to gather function
call coverage information. This will be useful in determining which
functions in an application has been called either on-demand or throughout
its lifetime.

XRay Converters: Implementing conversion tools for XRay traces into
different formats. Some that come to mind are the Common Tracing Format,
SQL (to be loaded into databases), etc.

I'm volunteering to be a mentor for the XRay projects too.

Hope this helps!
