Questions to answer

Why do you want to work with the Fedora Project?

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

Have you participated in GSoC in the past? If so, what year(s) and which organization(s)?

Do you plan to continue contributing to the Fedora Project after GSoC? If yes, what sub-project(s) are you interested with?

Why should we choose you over other applicants?

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)?

Do you have any other open source experience (even if not coding-related)?

Proposal Description

Overview and The Need

Any relevant experience you have

As a contributor to glusterfs I have prior knowledge of the codebase,this would be helping me in integrating the new feature build for the geo-replication over the current features using C and Python wherever required.

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.

A rough timeline for your progress

Final deliverable

Any other details you feel we should consider

I have keen interest increasing my Fedora and FOSS contribution. I also possess good knowledge of the project's codebase and I have been in regular touch with my mentor since path 2 months. link title
