I am Lahiru Sandaruwan Pathirage, a university student(University of
Colombo School of Computing) from Sri Lanka, expecting BSc in computer
science in 2016. I've been looking forward to participate GSOC 2015 and I
found the "Implement tiny kdump" project, which am interested in.
I have a 5 years of experience using Linux operating systems, mostly
Archlinux and Fedora. And have completed the course module "Operating
systems" in my degree program which contains core mechanisms of operating
systems. Also I have learnt kernel module programming, C/C++, assembly,
python and a good knowledge about Linux kernel.
I like to know whether there are any qualification tasks.
Lahiru Sandaruwan Pathirage (lpathirage)
I am Computer Science undergraduate (Duel Degree) student from an
Indian Institute(International Institute of technology
). I am using the fedora OS from last three years as part of my academic
So I have a good knowledge about the Operating System. I believe
I have Good Programming
skills as I have completed some programming projects
. I know C/C++, Python very Well. I have Completed Two Courses in Computer
Networking, Introductory Computer Networks And Advanced Computer Network as
a part of My Academic along with some Practical skills by doing
(Related to Socket programming and other one related to NTP Protocol and
Some About Cisco Packet Tracer, wireshark etc.)
. As I have mentioned earlier that I am a Duel Degree Student, (B.tech in
CS and MS By Research in CS), My Research Area is Algorithms, Cryptography
and Information Security So I have a good knowledge in the field of
Information Security. So
I fulfill All the perquisite mentioned on the Project Page. I Want to work
on this project in GSOC 2015. I believe this project is best suited for me
and I will be able to utilize my full potential on this project.
*I want to be fully committed to this project from now and I have Few other
Technical Question regarding your expectation from this project as well as
Some Doubts which i want to resolve.*
I believe I don't have proper Access of Mentor's Contacts So I thought
it would be better to post here. Hoping to get involved in the Project for
the Next Summer.
I'm Mahesh Bandara Wijerathna & i'm from Sri Lanka. I'm 21 years old. First
of all i'm so glad that i chose to join the fedora community. I've been
familiar with Linux distributions for almost 7 years now. First with Ubuntu
& then with fedora. I find fedora as the best user friendly RPM based Linux
distro. After that i got to know RedHat, CentOS & everything.
I can say i have a gained reasonable amount of experience in fedora Project
& community over the years. I've also got in touch with Few of Fedora
Ambassadors from Sri Lanka.
In a summary in open source world, i've got very familiar with Gnome &
CCExtractor in Last few years. Started Developing in Gtk+ & Gtkmm with
Gnome. I have knowledge in languages C, C++, Gtk+, Gtkmm, JSE, JEE, php,
I can be very enthusiastic about open source projects & have been dedicated
to a lot in the past. So my interest in this year in to apply to GSoC '15
with Fedora Project. Please Guide me.
Thank you all. :)

Mentoring does take a decent amount of time, and is a months' long
commitment - starting now, and going through the end of the summer. Not
everyone has the time for that. :)
Lack of mentors was a problem we face last year too. I suggest, draft the
projects without naming mentors. If any contributor in the community have
confidence and time to guid the students, lets give them an opportunity to
volunteer as mentors.

Hello Sheesh. What in particular are you looking to do on the rolekit
project? We didn't *specifically* call out any rolekit tasks on the
proposals page; what we have there is actually a Cockpit project task
for integrating with some of the work we've done on rolekit.
However, if you're specifically interested in working on rolekit, tell
me what you would like to see added to the project and we'll discuss
(Please also subscribe to
it on the CC list)

We have to edit the current page
