Why do you want to work with the Fedora Project?
I would like to be part of Fedora Project because I take immense pleasure working in an open-source community. I started using Linux with Fedora and I am still a Fedora user. Also, I am passionate about programming and have previously contributed in Askbot and Dorrie in Fedora. Therefore, I would like to spend this summer hacking around with this idea.
Do you have any past involvement with the Fedora project or any other open source project as a contributor?
Yes, I contributed to a lot of open-source projects. wordgroupz and wordcollections were among my first projects I contributed. I also contributed to Askbot(which powers AskFedora), Transifex, Dorrie. I also have made minor patches to a lot of other open-source projects.
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 contributing to the Fedora Project even after the GSoC 2013 program. The darkserver in itself has a lot of features to be implemented, so I will continue contributing to this project itself. In the long run, I would like to work with the Fedora-Apps team.
Why should we choose you over other applicants?
I have keen interest increasing my Fedora and FOSS contribution. I also possess good knowledge of the project's codebase.
