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?

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
