I am a final year Undergraduate in CSE. I would like to contribute to the
389 Directory Server Project. I am proficient in Object Oriented
programming in Python. I have read about 389 Server Project and how it
works and its specification. I am very excited to work toward the same and
contribute to the open source community. Can anyone guide me for further
Thanks in Advance.
I'm Mayank Verma, 2nd year CS student at Dayananda Sagar College of
Engineering, Bangalore, India.
I'd like to contribute to the Fedora community by developing a new
application that eases migration from an old system to a new one with the
help of an external HDD as swapping internal hard disks is not something
that every user is capable of. Currently, nearly all articles available on
the web explain achieving this task using CLI. However, to be truly
user-friendly I'd like to create a GUI utility for this that handles nearly
all errors without user intervention.
I'm interested in pursuing on this idea, as I've myself spent days in
migrating my Fedora installation (LVM Live Migration) from my old notebook
to a new one due to errors that I've encountered during the process
1. Complexity in booting from external HDD due to incompatibility between
GPT and MBR partitioning schemes when the internal HDD is GPT while
external HDD is MBR.
2. Additional complexity when your Fedora partition is luks encrypted.
3. Corruption of GRUB, Fstab and other configurations during the
4. Potential driver conflicts (especially proprietary ones like Nvidia).
I'm fairly good at programming in C, C++, Java and Python.
I'd like to know how to find mentors who might be interested in my project
idea so that I can discuss my idea in detail.
I'd also like to inform that I've created my FAS account at this point of
time, but I don't have required permissions to create my user page in

I'm Anurag Malyala, A second year undergrad at Delhi Technological
University in computer science. This will be my first time doing GSoC.
I've been using Linux for hobbies and coding purposes for a few years
now and thought now will be the perfect time to start contributing to it.
I've been using c++ and python from day one of my coding life and I'm
pretty comfortable using either. I've not done any "big" development
tasks yet but have done plenty of smaller ones (nothing to showoff or
brag about just simple day-to-day fixes for things). I've done projects
I'm interested in contributing to the 389 ds server project. I had OOP
in my previous semester and I'm doing operating systems and databases in
the current one. The concepts, the theory, and the implementation are
fresh and ready to be used in the real world in my mind. I'd be glad to
contribute towards it in this GSoC and after it as well.
My preferred mode of communication is via email.

My name is Dario (FAS account sdb), I'm computer science student in my last year at University of Milan, Italy. With Fedora distribution I learned a lot so I'd like to contribute in Fedora project.
I know several type of programming languages, but my favorites are Python, C and Java. I love computer security and I'm membrer of Fuffateam in CTF (capture the flag) competitions. In my github repo I developed a tool for symbolic execution in python and a tool for machine learning in C. Now I work to a tool for a malware behavioral analisys.
I'm interested in Static analysis SIG application for GSoC Fedora project.
My name is Kristoffer (kriops on FAS), and I'm on my second year of a five-year computer science degree at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. I’ve been using Fedora almost every day or a few years now, and my motivation for submitting a proposal this GSoC is getting hands-on experience with open source projects as well as contributing back to the particular project on which I personally depend the most.
With regards to which project I’ll be submitting a proposal for I have yet to make a final decision. However the ones which have piqued my interest and are subsequently being considered are admin tools for 389 and migrating Plinth to Fedora Server.
I’m looking forward to interacting with the Fedora community, and I wish you all the best of luck!
I'm Kumar Akshay and I'm highly interested to work with fedora community this summer. I'm a second year undergrad and this is my first time in gsoc. For the record, I'm not elite programmer though I've done few projects to qualify as a developer.
I primarily use python for most of the projects. I've worked with flask to create webapps and have deployed it to Amazon Web Services and pythonanywhere (github link https://github.com/kakshay21/PythonAPP).
This project is not appropriate but I wrote it for fun, and accidentally it was selected as an event in our campus. I used php for backend and mysql for db and simple materialise front-end. I hosted this project on aws server so I had to configure everything like installing apache server and all those stuff(github link https://github.com/kakshay21/AAYAM).
I've done several other projects in machine learning too but those are not appropriate to mention.
I want to contribute to opensource partly because it very proud feeling that you code is serving thousands of users directly or indirectly and I want to be part of that community and partly because I've never worked with anything like ten thousand lines of code. So I'm excited about this.
I think this project, 389 ds, will be very exciting to work with such a giant community like fedora. I hope to get support from the community and I'll do the same.
On reading about the 389 ds and it's origin, one question just came out. Please pardon me if it's not appropriate. I learned that 389 ds is ideally a centralised database for storing information like users etc. I understand there are different purposes for this server too but what's wrong with storing all these information in mysql db? Or any of this kind of db?
Though I understand it has several security layer for protection but I think that's not a trouble to implement on mysql too.
I've one more trouble with installation fedora in UEFI mode on my laptop(Hp g3 250) though it's working fine in BIOS compatibility mode and I've installed it successfully but it's just a query has anyone installed it in UEFI mode?
