Hi Mayank,

It's exciting to hear that you want to tackle this project!

One of the first steps will be to understand the role of gnulib-tool,
i.e. how it is used [1].

When you have the code, look at the shell-script code in gnulib-tool. Are
you familiar with reading (not writing) shell-script like this, i.e. to
understand what the existing code does, line by line?

Also, you mention you know Python. I would also like to hear what kind
of experience with object-oriented programming you have (in Python, or
other programming languages)? If you could write something about this in
your application?

Then, so that you don't make a formal mistake, be sure to read the procedure
explanations from GNU [2] and from Google [3].

I hope the project inspires you!
