+## Kernel projects
+
+* Support more than 64 CPUs. Read more [here](http://lists.dragonflybsd.org/pipermail/kernel/2014-February/063062.html).
+
+* Port [bhyve](http://bhyve.org/) - the BSD hypervisor to DragonFly.
+
+* Work on improving the HAMMER2 Filesystem.
+
+* Add Linux 64-bit compatibility (in my opinion, the time would be better spent by having a fast virtual machine like bhyve or virtualbox available for DragonFly).
+
+## Userland projects
+
+* Switch to <tt>llvm/clang</tt>. Read more [here](http://www.dragonflybsd.org/docs/developer/clang/).
+
+* Replace <tt>bind</tt> with [Unbound](http://unbound.net/).
+
+* Replace <tt>sendmail</tt> with [OpenSMTPd](http://www.opensmtpd.org).
+
+* Port VirtualBox.
+
+* Port Video4Linux, so we gain support for webcams in DragonFly.
+
+* Cross-compile the [Rust](http://www.rust-lang.org) language compiler.
+
+## Experiments
+
+* Experiment with [Rust](http://www.rust-lang.org) in kernel modules.
+
+## Documentation
+
+* Cleanup the Wiki.
