I have a great opportunity to propose projects related to *High
*for my university. I'm interest in this field and I'm glad to know that is
there any project ideas in Fedora Project which can I engage as my final
year project and contribute for Fedora community.
I am a computer engineering undergraduate at university of Peradeniya, Sri
Lanka. And I am also an open source enthusiast who loves linux most. So i
am looking forward to contribute fedora. And i am so grateful if somebody
can tell me where should i start.

Please note that fedora is "downstream", that is, we take software from
developers ("upstream") and package it to our users. If you're really
interested in bug fixing, you'd be better of working with upstream
directly. This will ensure that all of upstreams users receive your
fixes, and not just fedora. Fedora package maintainers will in-fact send
your fixes upstream, in accordance with our policy of staying in close
contact with them
