A reminder for the same. I would be grateful if anyone can guide me in
this. Should I directly submit my proposal on the page?

I am an undergraduate student doing my B.Tech in Computer Science from
IIITD. I have been using Nmap for quite a few months and would really want
to be a part of the developing alongside you guys.

The NSE looks really promising for developing scripts and testing them
out. I have an interest in the Script Developers roles and would really be
happy to contribute in finding vulnerabilities and preventing exploitation
in the same.

Apart from the standard languages knowledge of C, C++, Java, Python,
Javascript and HTML, I am also learning Lua and researching upon SQL
Injection and XSS. I had contributed in the Local Moodle Server setup for
our institute, and am also writing a monitoring system application through
SNMP for our institute's IT department and have a good sense about network
security and monitoring.

I really want to contribute to NMap and GSoC will give me an opportunity
to showcase the same. Hence I request the mentor to guide me regarding the
same. I'm working on my rough draft of the proposal and would provide you
with the details. Just tell me how should I approach you.

Thanks guys!

Hello Mridul,

The mailing list is generally rather quiet during this stage of Google Summer 
of Code, don't feel discouraged ;) From what I noticed while watching and in 
participating in last year's GSoC, it's best to show some idea of what  you're 
planning to do when you apply for the specialist assignments.

As for the proposals, yes, I heard that you're supposed to put them directly 
on the website - IIRC you can edit them later if you want. You might also 
forward it here if you're interested in some opinions, but keep in mind that 
feedback isn't really guaranteed.
