Please answer following questions.

Why do you want to work with the Fedora Project?

I am not new to the Fedora Project, I was using and contributing to the local fedora community. Therefore I have decided to take part with GSoC program with the project I am familiar. Since I am familiar with Java I took this idea for the program.

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)?

As I have noted I am contributing to the Fedora local community. Other than that I m fan of Andriod developing apps in my free time. With in the local community I assist Fedora Ambassadors in event organizing and I assisted to develop the local fedora community web site[1] as well.

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

I tried last year with Fedora project but could not able to submit the proposal as I was busy with my examinations. If I am selected this would be my first time.

Will you continue contributing/ supporting the Fedora project after the GSoC 2012 program, if yes, which team(s)/area(s), you are interested with?

I ll keep contributing to the Fedora local community as usual. Further I keep improving the tool developed and contribute actively with Java SIG team by maintaining a package. I have already started familiarizing with Java SIG team on the mailing list.

Why should we choose you over the other applicants?

I am a computer engineering undergraduate who will be graduating this year and posses a good knowledge on Java. I am an existing contributor who has shown a commitment towards the project. Therefore you can believe that I ll complete this project and keep contributing towards the Fedora project.
