Please answer following questions.

Why do you want to work with the Fedora Project?

Because I like the idea of working with the open source community. Built by everyone for everyone. I also feel that I could develop my skills as a computer engineer while helping the Fedora distribution move forward.

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)?

Just started getting involved packaging for the JBoss project for Fedora. The process always seemed a bit daunting but I am hoping to get introduced to the culture and the community. In doing so I would increase my own knowledge while putting it to use for the Fedora community. I have started to get involved with the JBoss packaging effort and my most recent package was jboss-web.

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, packaging for the near future. As I finish up my degree work, I will be adding skills to allow me to further help the project in other areas. Hopefully next semester I will be taking an operating systems course geared towards operating system development and a course on embedded development.

Why should we choose you over the other applicants?

Motivated, self-starter, with an insatiable desire to learn, help, and please others.
