I wrote e-mail mentor Dennis (dennis(a)ausil.us) but answer has not arrived
yet.I am interested Web hosting control panel project.
I am a computer engineering student and open source enthusiastic.I am code
since childhood and looking forward to participate Google Summer of Code
I am study web hosting control panel project but I don't find anything
implementation,previously I guess Itamar Reis Peixoto accepted GSoC 2012
for this project.
I have questions.What stage this project ? Where is existing code ? What is
shortcomings ? How do I contribute to the project ?
I think, this is interesting project for GSoC 2013 and I am very interested
to implement features.

I am an undergraduate student of engineering in Computer Sciences and am
interested in participating in GSoC via Fedora.
I am more interested in contributing to Python-based projects. The Idea for
'Fedora Gooey Karma' particularly interests me. Though, I need more headers
for the same. I have some experience on working with PyGtk and some
knowledge of Tkinter.
Also, the link pointing to 'http://blog.tirfa.com/gooey-karma' seems to be
Waiting to hear back..:-)
I ended up sending it directly to the OP. Amends made.

I'm a CS Undergrad in India and currently in my sophomore year of
am looking forward to take part in the projects proposed by Fedora for
gsoc. Following projects sounded interesting to me:
1. Assemble a toolchain for recording screencasts easily
I've made quite a few screencasts for my blog and posted them on youtube.
These were made on Windows and Linux using open-source software (majorly
ffmpeg). You can find them
I even made one on how to make a screencast on Linux which you can
I love making these tutorials as and when I find time. In fedora there are
a lot of things which are difficult for a beginner to learn and he always
either has to google it or ask his teachers. It would be really cool to
have a set of video tutorials for various do-hows and an independent
recording software explicitly for fedora. Recently I've used blender for
creating 3-D models of my OpenGL Game [Part of a project for my Graphics
Course]. I would like to learn more about gstreamer and video,
I've tried contacting the Fedora-Videos-Team. But didn't receive any reply.
2. Implement a unit test framework for fedpkg and rpk
The project sounds interesting as I love python and would like to put my
python skills to good use. However, the details about the project are not
very clear. I request the mentor to update or post a link so that a student
can read more.
3. Dorrie: A web-interface for building Fedora spins/remixes
This project has been left untouched and no body took it up in GSoc 2012.
However, it has an appreciable amount of contribution by the mentor and I
would love to take part in it as I am good in python and have knowledge of
python-based web framework web2py [It won't take much time for me to learn
Django for this project].
4. Fedora Gooey Karma
The project has already been implemented by one of the fedora-qa members. I
don't understand why it is still here in the list. Please update it if more
features are to be added. I find this interesting because I am looking
forward to learn GUI building using python.
My coding style in C/C++ programming can be seen
is a 3-D game developed with the help of a little OOP and OpenGL] and for
python. you can find it
is another game involving a Robot using ncurses library and a bit of OOP].
Please do tell me whether I am eligible for the any of the above projects
and how can I contribute to it as a gsoc or non-gsoc candidate.

I am an undergraduate student who would be interested in pursuing the
infrastructure idea to set up Gitlab as a front end for fedorahosted.org.
I would like to discuss the steps involved to set up such a system and am
planning to contribute to the fedora community even long after the gsoc
