<div>Well i started with fdo#42788, the change i proposed to the
mailing list, honestly i was a beginner so the change i proposed
was very silly, so didn't submit to the gerrit..<br>
<div>Then, with fdo#64290, i had to do real hardwork, it was a
very easy hack in the end, but since it was my first time with
huge source code i took three weeks to hack it.. I have
submitted the patch to gerrit..<br>
<div>Well, the thing is when i got information about GSOC, it
occured to me that it is the perfect program to kick start my
open source involvement.. But i am not sure i will be able to do
it because, i have taken 3 weeks to solve an easy hack..</div>

If you don't get accepted, then find out why and do something about

achieve them, and each success sets you up for the next ...<br>
