Dear all,

   I would like to contribute in GNU/HURD.

- What areas are you interested in contributing to?

I would like to contribute in "Porting Packages", I have previous experience of creating Debian GNU/Linux packages from source.

In future I will try my best to contribute in "Hurd on a modern microkernel".

- How is your expertise about system and kernel programming?

I have basic knowledge about system and kernel programming. I just finished my undergrad and need to study details on these.

- Have you previously been working on Free Software projects?

Yes, I am running a small project at SF.net - netaccess- squid.sourceforge.net (project owner/core developer).

I am also involved with our local OSS group www.ankur.org.bd since 2004 (testing, localization, development).

- What is your motivation to work on the GNU Hurd?

I am involved with OSS from several years. I am using Linux as my primary desktop since 2004 (now also familiar with Mac OS X). I have tested initial testing version of GNU/HURD 2-3 years back in my old P- lll 750MHz. Though I have to write so many lines to boot from grub, after get the HURD login shell, I was simply amazed. I have planned to contribute to GNU/HURD project after finish my undergrad.
