please answer following questions

Why do you want to work with the Fedora Project?

I've been told there is an opportunity for a Mozilla project to happen this year under the Fedora Project umbrella. This can also be an opportunity to strengthen the relationship between the Mozilla and the Fedora communities.

Do you have any past involvement with the Fedora project or any other open source project as a contributor?

Yes, I am a regular contributor at Thunderbird and Seamonkey project since April 2013. My contributions can be seen at sshagarwal openhub profile

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

Yes, I participated in GSoC 2014 under Mozilla Foundation on the Thunderbird project.

Will you continue contributing/ supporting the Fedora project after the GSoC 2014 program, if yes, which team(s), you are interested with?

My future involvement with Fedora is difficult to predict at this point, but I expect to continue contributing to my project and Thunderbird in general.

Why should we choose you over other applicants?

I am an active contributor to the Thunderbird codebase and have been involved with the Mozilla community. And I am familiar with the Thunderbird codebase in particular.
