please answer following questions
Why do you want to work with the Fedora Project?
I have been using various linux distros since I started using linux around 4 years ago. I found Fedora as one of the most well-documented, systematic and rapidly updating distros and I kept using it. I am currently using Fedora 19. As I have been a long-time user, I would like to start contributing to the Fedora community. Moreover, the Fedora project is very large and diverse. The experience that I will gain from contributing to Fedora is not something every organization can provide. I definitely have the interest and curiosity to become a part of the Fedora project.
Do you have any past involvement with the Fedora project or any other open source project as a contributor?
I have not been involved with the fedora community as a contributor since long but I have recently started contributing as a Fedora Package maintainer with uploading a package as a bug-fix. I find GSoC as a very good opportunity to start moving in the direction of being a long-term contributor to the fedora community.
Did you participate with the past GSoC programs, if so which years, which organizations?
No, I have not participated in the past GSOC programs.
Will you continue contributing/ supporting the Fedora project after the GSoC 2013 program, if yes, which team(s), you are interested with?
I will definitely be willing to continue contributing to the Fedora project and invest much more of my time in giving back to the community. I would like to start off as a package maintainer for fedora. I have recently learnt ruby and I am very interested in the Ruby_SIG group of the fedora project. This project, itself, would require long-term package maintainers which I would be very much glad to be. I am open to any other opportunities which may co-exist with my interests and my skills.
Why should we choose you over other applicants?
