Re: GSoC 2021

Hello Lasal,

Nice to have you here with us! Under FOSSology, we have 3 projects with which we participate in GSoC. Hopefully we will be selected as an organization this year around as well by Google.

I'll give you a brief overview of the projects so you can explore more about them.
  1. The major project is FOSSology itself.
    It is an open source license complain toolkit which helps you find out different licenses which are present in a given source code. With the help of a web based UI, users can then curate the results and generate the reports required for compliance.
  2. As a part of FOSSology, a new scanner called Atarashi.
    Atarashi uses various text statistic techniques like tf-idf, dld, n-grams, etc. to identify license related text in a source file. It is designed to work stand-alone and with FOSSology.
  3. This year, a new project was introduced called Nirjas.
    It is a python library and a stand-alone tool which can extract comments from a source code, differentiate between multiline and single line comments, do a sloc count, etc.
For all the three projects, you can find the issues labelled as "good first issue" to start with. If you need further help, please feel free to drop an email, open an issue or ping us on our slack channel:

With best regards,
Gaurav Mishra

Hello Everyone!!! I am Lasal Jayawardena and I am very happy to join the community.

I am planning to enter the GSoC 2021 and I want to start contributing.
Can anyone give some pointers as to how I can do that?
