Please have a look at:
As I cannot see any patches from you.

As stated on the wiki pages, you need to have completed easyHacks to be qualified.

I am the mentor of the GSoC idea, and I invite you to take a look at

and of course try to run the make.

The first step, is to make a proposal (according to the GSoC guidelines). Once we agree on the proposal, it needs to be submitted and then it will be evaluated together with other proposals. An Organization gets in general, allowance to accept X students, and if there are more proposals the org. decides which ones to select.

Your experience looks like a good fit for the job, there is another student also interested, but it might be possible to share the work.

I did a project on compiler design, wherein I developed a Java compiler in python using PLY library. I have worked on NACHOS to test some of the scheduling algorithms, demand paging techniques, implemented condition variables and semaphores. I did an architecture project to get my hands on over cache hierarchy techniques and branch & target predictors. I am currently working on computer security projects, wherein I have done control hijacking, privilege separation, learnt about several symbolic execution techniques like DART, KLEE & EXE. I have a basic knowledge of compiler design, databases, functional programming, machine learning and computer security as well. You can find my work here:
