Why do you want to work with the Fedora Project?

I used Ubuntu as my OS but with its' unity DE I gave up using Ubuntu and started using Fedora. Then I realized Fedora is a great Linux distro. Therefore I would like to work with the Fedora project and be it is community member.


Do you have any past involvement with the Fedora project or with any another open source project as a contributor (if possible please add some references as well)?

I have contributed to Ubuntu in localization and I m contributor for LibreOffice as well. I m new to Fedora.

Did you participate with the past GSoC programs, if so which years, which organizations?

In 2010 I worked with a Acpahe Foundations' project for GSoC. This will be my second time.

Will you continue contributing/ supporting the Fedora project after the GSoC 2012 program, if yes, which team(s)/area(s), you are interested with?

I ll contribute to FWN and localization teams. I would like to package and maintain LibreOffice for Fedora as well.

Why should we choose you over the other applicants?

I have experience with GSoC and I am good with most of the scripting languages fedora is currently using.
