Hi, I am an undergraduate Computer Science and Engineering student at Amrita School of Engineering, Amritapuri, India. I have 2 years of experience with Python and Django and have worked on various projects including a Club management system which helps members manage student details, registrations, and events. I have also contributed to Distro-tracker, an opensource project in Debian which keeps track of Debian packages. I feel that my experience and skill sets matches the project. It would be a great opportunity to be a part of the GFOSS community and contribute for the greater good. I am interested in working on the project FilesDB and It would be great to get feedback. Since it's mentioned on the Ideas page of Files DB that it would be worthwhile to provide a Web interface, I would like to implement it using Python-Django framework. Django ORM will make it easy to use most of the database servers including SQLite out of the box. The command line utility can be separate from the Django application and can use a rest API to communicate to the server. The os module in Python can be used to get the meta-data about the files, and hashes can be taken using various python packages. I have gone through the notes provided at github.com/zvr/filesdb  and have few queries regarding the project idea. - It's mentioned that `Individual SQLite files seem to be the perfect point between functionality and complexity`., does that mean the command line utility should create an SQLite file for the first scan of a folder? - Should subsequent scans on different folder update the DB with changes or create a new DB file? - What could be the search criteria that can be used to search a file? - Can the web server handle the various questions that can be asked about the file: how many files, how many files larger than X etc. or should it be handled by the command line utility.  https://ellak.gr/wiki/index.php?title=GSOC2018_Projects#Files_DB  https://github.com/amfoss/fosswebsite  https://salsa.debian.org/qa/distro-tracker/merge_ requests/?scope=all&utf8=%E2%9C%93&state=merged&author_ username=chirath-guest  https://github.com/zvr/filesdb With Regards, Chirath R BTech, 4th year, CSE FOSS@Amrita <http://foss.amrita.ac.in/>, Amrita University <http://www.amrita.edu> Twitter <https://twitter.com/> | LinkedIn <https://in.linkedin.com/pub/chirath-r/103/534/97a> | Github <https://github.com/Chirath02/> *"Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat."*
