After recommendation from my classmate I’ve decided to join Google Summer of Code for year 2013. Firstly I had to decide which organization and project I would like to contribute. Fedora was the first organization which came to my mind so I’ve started to read about projects on wiki idea page.
As a tester I’ve scrolled down to the section “Applications for Testers” and Fedora Gooey Karma was the best for me. I really like the idea of adding karma to new patches and how people can contribute/decide what will be in updates. I know something about project Fedora Easy Karma which is a CLI tool for adding karma via Bodhi. I am a big fan of CLI tools but it’s not enough user-friendly for this kind of work. So I’ve decided to try it.
After discussions with mentors I’ve written proposal and “won” this project for this year of GSOC.
GUI tool should bring more people to be part of testing part and I am glad that I will be part of it.
I am waiting to get writing access to correct repository and studying functionality of Fedora Easy Karma and Bodhi library.
I would like to prepare a few functions to communicate with Fedora servers and get some basic information about updates or comments which I will surely need in Fedora Gooey Karma.
