My name is Guanglin Xu. I am a second-year master student at Sun
Yat-sen University in China, majoring in Software Engineering. I am
also a perspective PhD student matriculated in the US. I'm planning on
doing summer projects which I can work remotely. The GSoC 2014 program
of Git project is a great choice.

I am kind of a "skillful" Git user with 4 years' experience in 3
projects. For example, I am a Top 5 contributor in LibVMI project
(https://github.com/bdpayne/libvmi); I host a team-made mobile app in
Github (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ying-yue/id689566688?ls=1&mt=8).

To get familiar with the flow of Git development, I worked on
microproject [2] and had corresponding conversations with Eric
Sunshine, Jacopo Notarstefano and Sun He in threads. Thank you for
their comments on my work.

Now I've submitted my proposal to google-melange. In brief, I propose
to replace object loading/writing layer by libgit2, which comes from
the GSoC 2014 ideas page of Git project. Particularly, since I didn't
realize where the hardest part is when I looked into the initial aim
of this idea, I added a performance requirement that the new
implementation should at least not run slower than previous one. Maybe
I underestimated specific challenge in working with Git, suggestions
or warnings for this topic are all welcomed.

Thanks for your consideration for GSoC 2014.
