My name is Efstathios Agrapidis (efagra) and I am a final year
undergraduate student at the University of Macedonia  in Greece,
where I study Applied Information Technology. I am currently an
openSUSE user for the last two years and linux user since almost a
decade (hoping from one distro to another), but really new to the
beauty of the community behind such projects (one and a half year). I
have mostly contributed to the greek part of the community by
mentoring in this year's GCI, partitipating in events, translating
software/weekly news/wiki, making presentations and I think this would
be the best oportunity for me to start contributing in the software
part of the distribution.
It's always good to see our contributors applying to GSoC!
I am not interested only in one specific project but
in many and I
need guidance on how to proceed, as I have different reasons for each
idea. Below I am listing all of them line by line:
SUSE Studio Java Client SDK
Gtk Front End to Oyranos
Redesign fdisk to be more extensible and implement GPT support
On-demand Symbolic Memory
Concolic Symbolic Execution
LTP:Fix/Implement automated kernel/glibc tests
Automatic resizing of LVM volumes and filesystems
There are two obvious comments here:
- we can't decide what project you're more interested in :-)
- it's better to focus on one, or maybe two projects and apply only for
The second point is really important as, otherwise, you won't be able to
apply with good project submissions, and this will mean you're losing
some chances of getting accepted.
My advice for you is to look at your list, think hard about the projects
that will be the most fun for you (and there's no wrong answer here!),
and focus on those. You can then contact the potential mentors and
discuss with them a bit before applying.
Good luck with GSoc!
