please answer following questions
Why do you want to work with the Fedora Project?
I am passionate about Open Source Software. During the initial phase of my contribution to SSSD I got a chance to play with Fedora 18 and I was impressed by it to such an extent that I am a Fedora user now. Fedora is really cool and an awesome OS with everything being so lucid, attractive and the last but not the least an impressive GUI. It will be a pleasure contributing to a project like Fedora.
Do you have any past involvement with the Fedora project or any other open source project as a contributor?
I have contributed to other open source projects as well https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Abhisheksingh/contributions .
Did you participate with the past GSoC programs, if so which years, which organizations?
Will you continue contributing/ supporting the Fedora project after the GSoC 2013 program, if yes, which team(s), you are interested with?
Yes, I will continue my support, contributions to Fedora project even after Gsoc 2013. I am interested in SSSD team and QA team. There are lots of opportunities for contribution with the release of SSSD 1.9.5 and the upcoming new features in SSSD 1.10.
Why should we choose you over other applicants?
I have sound programming skills in C, C++ and Python. I have acquired good knowledge of cmocka framework and have done some initial contribution in support of my proposal. I am willing to contribute and support my project after the GSoC program finishes, I also have keen interest in contributing to SSSD and the QA community after GSoC 2013.
