please answer following questions

Why do you want to work with the Fedora Project?

I'm already a fedora contributor for about 4 years now. To me, Fedora Project is a wonderful place to learn, contribute and keep in contact with other cool project members. Also fedora project community seems the most successful Linux distro project which has nice and very solid community architecture.

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

As I said. I'm a long term contributor of Fedora project. More details of my work in fedora projcet can be found in my fedora profile Uditha Bandara Wijerathna. I was a contributor of Joomla Project as a Developer for Joomla 1.5. Currently I'm holding the position, Manager (Initiatives) FOSSUser Project in Sri Lanka. I have given may talks locally and internationally representing fedora project and also conducted hack sessions.

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

-Yes- GSoC 2013 with Fedora Project.

Will you continue contributing/ supporting the Fedora project after the GSoC 2013 program, if yes, which team(s), you are interested with?

As always, I was an active contributor and I'll. Currently I'm a member of Ambassadors, Fedora Bugs, Infra, Freemedia groups. Soon I'll be contributing to the Packaging and Kernel team too. Additionally I'll contribute continuously to the GSoC 2014 project that I'll be working on.

Why should we choose you over other applicants?

For the project I chose to work in GSoC 2014 is basically related to the Ambassadors and FAmSCO within the fedora project. I already have a thorough idea and hands on experience with Fedora Financial activities. Also I'm in contract with most of the person who handles the comm-arch and finance in Fedora. Finally I'm a hard working person and I try my best to achieve the targets in a productive manner. So I believe that I already have clean set of resources to implement this project and complete it successfully.
