I am NVS Abhishek, a Computer Science undergraduate at College of Engineering and Technology, Bhubaneswar. I am eager to participate in this year's Google Summer of Code and I find the projects ideas listed under your organization very interesting. I am especially interested in the project idea "Add varlink support to Nmstate".
If anyone could help me get started with this project idea, it would be really helpful. :)
I am Tanuja Kirthi Doddapaneni, a third-year Computer Science student at
BITS Pilani - Hyderabad Campus, India. I am interested in working on
"adding varlink support to Nmstate" from the list of projects for GSoC
2020. I have good knowledge of Python, Rest API, Linux shell, and
Please let me know how to proceed further.
Thanks and Regards,
Tanuja Kirthi Doddapaneni.
Glad you are interested in the Packit project!
I am responding in a behalf of the Hunor (in CC), the task mentor since
he's out for some days.
Before we start, please read through the Google Summer of Code 2020
<https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/mentored-projects/gsoc/2020/> page on
Fedora Docs, including all the references to the GSoC documentation from
Google. This is important in order to make sure that you have a good
understanding of the timeline and things that need to be done in that
Since the Fedora organisation was officially approved on the 20th of
February, you can start getting familiar with Packit and start working on
Here are some links, where you can start exploring:
Packit.dev <https://packit.dev/> website. You’ll find user facing and
some architecture documentation here. Read through these to understand how
the service and application work from a user point of view.
Packit Service GitHub organization <https://github.com/packit-service>.
We have quite a few repositories here. Browse through them to understand
their purpose and how they relate to each other. You should spend most of
your time on getting familiar with packit
<https://github.com/packit-service/deployment> and dashboard
<https://github.com/packit-service/dashboard>. Try to play with the code
in these repositories, run the tests and maybe deploy the service on your
In order to prove your skills, I encourage you to contribute a change to
one of these repositories, before the end of the application review period
(April 27, 2020). You can either fix an issue you find while getting
familiar with Packit, or you could look at some of the issues labelled
good-first-issue. Note, that it’s not just code you can contribute, the
team also welcomes and values improvements to the documentation.
The goal for all the above is for you to learn enough about Packit so that
you can come up with a meaningful project proposal as part of your
As for staying in touch: email is the most reliable way, but you can also
reach me/Hunor(@csomh) on Telegram (the Fedora Summer Coding group) or
freenode in the #packit or #fedora-summer-coding channels. I’m usually
online 8-17 UTC on weekdays, so we should be relatively quick in replying
to pings during that period.

I'm Sudharshan third year CS student from Sri Lanka. I want work on packit integration with gitlab. I have good knowledge and experience in rest api development and Flask. This is my first gsoc and I'm new to open source contribution.
Can I get more information.
My name is Mairo Rufus, I am a student currently pursuing a Master in Software Engineering
in Cameroon(Yaounde). There are some of my social handles for those interested:
I'm interested in attending this year GSoC with the project "Improve Network Linux System Role".
As you can see from my Github, I am pretty comfortable with Python, which I've been working with
for some time I'm mainly interested in things related to automation (looking for being a self-taught Devops)
as you can see from my current side-project (https://github.com/rmpr/atbswp).
While thinkering a little bit, I stumbled upon Ansible, that's why I think this project is a great occasion
to dive deep into Ansible internals, to help me improve my skills and provide me an exposure to real
world (remote) work. After going through the resources linked to the project ideas, I'm interested in
Improving the test framework and the Network state management tasks.
I think I can tackle the "Improve the testing framework" task by my own but I would like guidance for the
Network state management: more documentation, tips to set up development environment, ... Anything you might find
useful, thanks in advance.
I am doing my undergrad in CSE at CBIT Hyderabad, India. I am interested in working on "Dashboard for Packit Project" as it aligns with my previous work in flask, REST API and web development in general.
Kindly let me know more about the project and where to start and what all needs to be done.
I am Shubham Mishra, an UG sophomore at IIT Kharagpur, India. I am
interested in working with the Gitab integration of packit-service. I have
prior experience in Python, Flask and Celery. I have built a CI application
based on Github webhooks before.
I will be glad if someone provides me my next steps.
Thanks and Regards,

Hey all, I am Anmol, an Engineering sophomore from Bharati Vidyapeeth College of Engineering, Pune. I would love to contribute to fedora in the upcoming summer of code. I was very new to programming last year but due to open source I was able to learn programming in a fun and better way, also I am an avid Linux user and started my journey with arch Linux and currently running Debian buster and would definitely hop to fedora in future, I always try to contribute to open source wherever possible, also if I not get selected for the upcoming summer of code I will continue contributing to Fedora in future.
