My background

  1. I am a fourth year undergraduate student of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India.
  2. I haven't contributed to open source before, and look at this as my first taste to open source development. However, I have done some projects as a part of my academic curriculum.
    • A minimal processor. [Verilog] (as a group of 2)
    • A compiler in C using Flex and Bison for a toy language.
    • Simulation of a file system. [C++] (as a group of 2)
    • HTTP server, client, proxy server, and DNS server. [C++] (as a group of 2)
    • Chat server and client (as a group of 2)
    • The code for the Chat Server and simulation of a file system can be found at http://github.com/NOLFXceptMe , my groupmate's.
    • I am pretty confident about this project, and I think I can complete it.

Me and the community

  1. If your project is successfully completed, what will its impact be on the Fedora community?
    • Users can backup and restore settings across different systems and distributions easily.
    • Users can sync settings across different systems.
  2. What will you do if you get stuck on your project and your mentor isn't around?
    • I will try to solve the problem myself, else I'll leave the problem for the time being and work on a different module until my mentor is available. If my mentor is away for an extended period of time, I will ask the Fedora community for suggestions and possible solutions.
