I'm not sure I'm allowed to write to this list for GSoC questions,
but it looks like most of the people interested in this application can be  
found only here, so I took a chance.

I'm a student from Romania, looking to hack some Ruby code during this  
and I found Fedora as one of the not so many organizations offering this  

I read the whole thread, and I found suggestions and conditions you need  
 from a student, pleasant for myself.

I know Ruby (among other programming languages) and I know sysadmining.
Previously I had 2 successful GSoC editions with WordPress Foundation,
and my first year project latest commit dates March 14th, this year.

The only problem I can for-see, is that I had and still maintain deep  
involvement in Ubuntu community (I'm the infrastructure admin for  
I don't know if this is an issue or not, but I really hope this wont  
affect in any way our relationship (here in Romania, we do Barcamps every  
year with fedora-ro, with beer, hiking and lots of pics, thx to @nicubunu ). :)

If all this stuff sounds interesting, I would be happy to present a draft  
on how we could solve FedoraHosted transition to Gitlab, and ensure its  
well maintained from now on.

Lately I started to hang on #fedora-summer-coding|#jbosstesting at freenode,  
but I'm not sure whom I should query.
I can't see Dan either online.

I also have a Github account:
and a resume:

Thanks in advance for reading this, and I'm looking forward for your reply.

P.S.: I will also be ok if you would like to find a fedora guy for this  
project, if so, just let me know, I won't mind. Seriously!
