I am Yang Jie, a MSc student from China. I found Ubuntu-GSoC some days ago
and feel quite interested in this activity. I am especially interested in
the project of GNOME centralized file sharing administration and find it a
good opportunity for me to contribute to the Ubuntu Foundation, so I want to
apply for this project.
It has been 3 years since I had chosen Ubuntu as my major OS due to its
humanized and convinence( of course, another important reason is that it's a
Linux OS). During the 3 years, I had got some opportunities to handle some
administration tasks based both on Ubuntu Server & Desktop Edition, when I
contributed a file server with samba & nfs, so I have had some basic
knowledge about samba. Additional, my group do researches mostly on Linux,
so I think I am fit for this job.
But there are still some problems to learn from you developers, mainly
because of lack of my knowlege.
1. Should I develop a GUI for this module or could it integration with
gnome? What information should I read to get start with it gui? I mean,
should I learn CObject or is it free to use other languages or libraries?
2. I want to implement both Samba and NFS shares. Besides the setup of their
configuration files, what more should I do when implement the functions?
3. What should I submit as a completed job, and how should I publish my
distribution? In my opinion, the source and binary files should be uploaded
and a documentation is necessary, and it may be a good choice to make a deb
Your reply will considerably encourage me. Once get the answer, I will run
with my prepare for the project, and complete and submit my proposal within
2 days. I will try my best to give a humanized file sharing administration
tool with quality, as my contribution to Ubuntu.
