I am Yang Jie, a MSc student from China. I found Fedora-SIG some days
ago and feel quite interested in this activity. I browsed the ideas
but didn't find a proper idea, so I want to propose for a file sharing
administration tool of Samba & NFS based on Gnome for fedora, but
found it not in the idea list. I wonder could a student create an idea
and propose for it?
Description of the project:
Name: File Sharing Administration Tool for Gnome
KDE has taken an advance on file sharing which is Kcm-filesharing by
allowing the user list all samba/nfs shares and allow the user to
configure the shares centrally and graphically, while which is
required but not supplied by Gnome.
The proposed project aims to create a utility that should provide a
graphical administration tool to configure both samba system shares
and nfs shares. It is able to manage the file sharing management,
authentication, and other most worthy configurations of samba and nfs.

Thank you & Best wishes!
