  • GSOC 2014 - Improve build farm look and feel The main goal of this project is to improve the look of build farm and redesign it to provide better support to the users. The project also aims at improving the page loading speed.
  • Regedit Improvements As part of my GSoC 2012 project, we created samba-regedit, a tool for interactively browsing and editing the Samba registry in the console. In its current state, it has a useable interface, but it’s very basic. This project will improve the regedit TUI by adding a color scheme and other refinements. Another aim is to add a DCERPC winreg backend, so users can use regedit to access remote registries.
  • SMB3 multicredit support and test build verification system for CIFS module The projects includes multicredit requests support implementation for SMB2.1 and higher versions of the protocol supported by CIFS module as well as creating a module build verification system.
