Hi Matthieu Patou, Wilco Baan Hofman, and Andrew Bartlett,

This is George, and I am a computer science PhD student in USA now. I intent
to work for your project during GSOC 2011, I am really interested in
your project ideas.

   * Implement server side GPO in Samba4
   * Implement login / logout related counter update

Please allow me to introduce some of my background and the reason why
I choose these ideas here for your reference.

Before I was involved in the current PhD program, I have worked on two
platforms for two companies(Huawei and SIEMENS), for around 5 years.

The first platform is a large scale router platform, I've been involve
in some protocol implementations of the transport layer, like PPPOE,
PPOA, and some application layer servers, like RADIUS and TACACS, in
4-tier TCP/IP protocol stack.

The second one is a test platform for a device called RNC in WCDMA
network, which is an wireless network based project.

Both of them are developed by C programming language.

I saw you are the mentors of these two projects, can you guys give me
some feedback about my background, and am I qualified for these two

The requirement in the samba idea page is C and network, both of them
are in my skill set, but for the whole samba system, I am afraid that
I am a freshman. Hopefully, I still have the chance to give it a shot.

Thanks again for your time!

Have a good day!
