This page details my proposal for the Fedora Medical GSoC project

Contact Information

All relevant contact information can be found on my user page.


  • Inclusion of packages to the fedora repos.
  • Easy installation of packages using the default package manager (yum/packagekit).
  • In the long run : A fedora medical spin with all of the important packages included.

Intended workflow

  • Start by checking the current status of the review queue
  • Package the more important applications first.
  • Packaging implies the following:
    • Make an rpm package (I'll do this)
    • Submit a review request (I'll do this)
    • Approve package (A reviewer needs to do this : takes maximum time)
    • Add package to comps (I'll do this)
  • Easily installable PACS and DICOM viewers are higher priority.
  • Instead of submitting one review per week, in sequence, I'll submit many in parallel in a period over 2-3 weeks. This way, we won't need to wait on one package before diving into another.
  • I will have maximum time to work on this during May, the whole of June, July. End of July and August will be just a little restricted.


This will be discussed with my mentor and edited as required.
