I've received some updated information from Google and this had slightly
modified your application requirements.
Specifically, you **MUST** submit a PDF with your application. The PDF
should consist of the information from the supplemental application
requirements. It should also contain any custom project you are
proposing, if any.
We are not allowed to consider students who do not submit this PDF. If
you have a problem getting the PDF submitted please contact Google and
CC me directly. It is expected that you can submit the PDF.
Students will not be judged on the visual layout of their PDF, however
all information must be readable. It is acceptable for you to submit PDF
printouts from the wiki.
I am sorry for this late change. I encourage you to do this as soon as
possible because applications are due soon.
I will update the wiki to reflect these requirements when I am next
at my desk.
Thank you for your interest and understanding.
My name is Eduard Čuba, I'm studying at Brno University of Technology
(second year) and I would like to propose my own project for Fedora Google
Summer of Code 2017.
Since May 2016 I'm contributing to project "Unified Software database for
DNF" or shortly SWDB about replacing obsoleted YUM databases by new unified
one designed for current needs of package managers in Fedora. Project was
presented at developer conference DevConf 2017 and is about to be merged
There is lot more work to do, I'm proposing project "Unified software
database for DNF and PackageKit" about better PackageKit and DNF

Hello, I'm Zsombor Szántó and I'd love to participate in GSoC this year with Fedora at the CommOps team.
# About me
I'm from Hungary, I'm a freshman BI student at Corvinus University of Budapest, and a Fedora user since F19.
Infrastructure tools and Linux on the server-side in general interest me a lot. I've been programming as a hobby for about 4 years, and I'm most comfortable in Python and Ruby.
I'm passionate about free software as a user, and I'd like to contribute to Fedora to help make it even better.
I have a few small projects of my own , and I also make occasional fixes or additions to programs I use .
However, my goal is to become more involved with opensource development, and I think this program with the mentoring and guidance is a great opportunity for that.
# Project preparation
I'd like to work on the Metrics project of the CommOps team  where I could take the "Custom statscache plugins for metrics" task.
I've tried out the related tools for the project: statscache, statscache_plugins, fedora-stats-tools, and gsoc-stats.
While I was going through the statscache plugin guide I stumbled upon a small bug there, which I submitted a PR for here .
I'll be discussing the project with the CommOps team, and upload my final application to the wiki - I'll be online and ask some questions about the project at #fedora-commops later today.
