I'm from Spain. I study on the University of Seville. I've been working as Linux System Administrator and Community Manager for a free software quiz program for 2 years. I have worked in some companies and I have experience with network security, network management, virtualization and systems.
This is my third year that I apply with the GSOC project. I have work with the Netfilter project in the GSOC'13 and GSOC'14. And I have some contributions in this projects:
I work hard and I want to learn more and I think that work in this project is the best way to do it.
Apport for Debian
Apport intercepts Program crashes, collects debugging information about the crash and the operating system environment, and sends it to bug trackers in a standardized form. It also offers the user to report a bug about a package, with again collecting as much information about it as possible.
Synopsis: a short description.
Intercepts Program crashes, collects debugging information about the crash and the operating system environment and report it.
Benefits to Debian
Offer to the user a crash detection tool and also use it as reporting tool.
Display bug reports - If connected to the internet, pull in all bug reports (with the particular usertag?) and display it to the user, for possible duplicate
Scan bug reports - If we pull in the bug reports, try to do a crash signature scan, to guess possible duplicate.
Offline functionality - What about Debian boxes that do not have network, or are behind a firewall???
Project schedule:how long will the project take? When can you begin work?
I can start working as GSoC'15 starts
Exams and other commitments:
I'm going to have two exams in June, but I have already begun to study and I'm not going to have any problem. I can work hard with the project.
Other summer plans:
I expect to have a long vacation.
Why not? I mean, It's Debian... Work with you will be a dream for me.
Are you applying for other projects in SoC?
I want to. I'm trying with the project Qemu
