Hello, I am Aakanksha Gaur, a design student from India. I have very recently finished my second semester at National Institute of Design, Bangalore  in Information and Interface Design (PG)  and have a summer block of three months free to work on area of my interest.
Since I use open source software daily and I have been wanting to contribute to Gnome, I thought it would be best for me to get started on it in this period! I have recently talked to Ploum about how to go about it and he directed me to Bertrand to further discuss the design of this feature on repeating tasks. He also asked me to join the mailing list of Gnome contributors. While joining the list I was asked to write to the admins and hence this email. Upon following the associated threads on this feature , and the design doc which is written by Izidor , I have been further reading about it so I can make an extensive list of use cases which can then be discussed upon, to further populate a feature set. I am currently studying and analyzing the following applications on other platforms for a more detailed understanding of the problem scope and limitations: 1. Repeating things for Mac 2. Remember the Milk 3. QuickCal 4. Wunderkit Repeating Tasks 5. Automator for Mac Also, I recently came across the GNOME Women Internship and GSOC programs and was wondering if I could propose for this in those. But since I am not a programmer am not sure if I am eligible for GSoC. But I do believe I can try out for the GNOME Women Internships. I wanted to know if there is a scope for this there and what would my work entail in the program. However, my main priority is just to be able to get started to contributing to Gnome. Looking forward to your pointers and tips on how to get started!
