Questions to answer
Why do you want to work with the Fedora Project?
My initial experience with Linux began with Ubuntu sometime in 2012. After some time I began to jump very often to many different distros till one day I stumbled upon Fedora. However, this time I had no urge to leave, or rather I didn't want to. Fedora wasn't like the others, there was something different about it that made me choose fedora as my main operating system of choice. I believe it was how polished it was that drew me to it. It was then I decided I wanted to contribute to fedora and the opportunities of GSoC will greatly help jump start my goal.
Do you have any past involvement with the Fedora Project or another open-source project as a contributor?
No, I have not had any past involvement with the Fedora project or any other open-source project.
Have you participated in GSoC in the past? If so, what year(s) and which organization(s)?
No, this is my first time participating in GSoC.
Do you plan to continue contributing to the Fedora Project after GSoC? If yes, what sub-project(s) are you interested with?
Yes, I do plan on contributing to the Fedora Project after GSoC. I'm most interested in the atomic project.
Why should we choose you over other applicants?
I want to contribute if I am selected or not so I believe
Have you contributed to any other open source organizations or projects? If so, do you have artifacts you can show so we can see your skill set(s)?
I have experience using several other distros.
Overview and The Need
Any relevant experience you have
I have taken a course in computer organization which had us program a little bit in C and assembly. Additionally, I will be taking principles of system design in spring, where i'll be using C extensively. After the course I expect to have moderate experience with C enabling me to understand the code and modify it accordingly.
How do you intend to implement your proposal
Refactoring will be done in the code base to a certain extent as discussed with the mentor and also the journaling feature - 'changelog' of glusterfs will be customised to serve the file-level synchronization.
