Please answer following questions.

Why do you want to work with the Fedora Project?

I want to work on HyperKitty project because it will solve a decade old problem of archivers. The project will create a huge impact and I’m very much interested to work on archiver project.

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)?

Last year I was student for KDE Summer of Code with KDE (ownCloud project). Solved couple of bugs in PhpMyAdmin. You can also check out my github profile in the link provided above.

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

No.

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

Yes. I will continue with development of HyperKitty with Fedora Infrastructure team.

Why should we choose you over the other applicants?

I have already started working on HyperKitty project. I have working knowledge of Python, Django. I have contributed to open source before. I am in constant touch with pingou and Toshio (active developers of HyperKitty).
