Hi Soumya,

Welcome to the community.

Here[1] is the link for Gluster Documentation. I would suggest you to
google and
read a bit about GlusterFS and then get started with "Quick Start
Once you have done your setup and have played a bit around the
installation and
configuration move on with "Developers Guide[3]".

If you want to get started with Code contributions pick some EasyFix
bugs which
can be found here[4]. After this I hope you would have got a minimal
idea and then
explore more in depth and pick up the project/component which interests
you more.
Again, we have some list of projects[5] already listed, check out if
anything interests
you here. Feel free to bring your own ideas as well. These are quite
generic for anyone
who is new to the community and in case if  you want to know
specifically about
Outreachy, someone in the community will surely respond to you shortly.

Let me take the Outreachy part up.

There are 2 projects there, one relating to the documentation, for which Manikandan has filled in some links and thoughts. The other being the instrumentation tooling around performance.

For the latter, I would suggest that you get a gluster volume up and running, and attempt the GlusterBench.py [6] against it, and start with reporting the results. Again, Manikandan has covered getting gluster up and running. For any questions, or things that you get stuck on when running the bench script, post back here and we will help as needed.

If you have queries, please mail us back. Also, we are always available
on #gluster-dev
and #gluster-meeting in Freenode.

All the best :-)

    I'm a research student pursuing my Masters in IIIT-Hyderabad. I am
    keen on working on Gluster's Outreachy project.

    I have prior experience in configuring, maintaining and managing
    systems in an MHRD project. I have completed the required course
    credits towards my degree and am working on my Thesis currently. It
    would be great opportunity for me to learn and contribute to the
    project as well.

    As I am a bit new to the community it would be nice if anyone can
    guide me a few useful resources to get me started.

    Thanks and regards,
