I would like to take part in this year's Google Summer of Code to
implement the User Preferences proposal. I took part in GSoC two years
ago, implementing phpMyAdmin's new setup script, which I hope works as
intended :)  Currently I am on the first year of postgraduate course
for master's degree on PoznaƄ University of Technology, specialization
- Data Processing Technologies.

In accordance with project proposal, all settings would be stored in
pmadb, with an option for easy export and import. User will be able to
change all relevant PMA features which do not affect performance or
security settings. After taking a quick glance at config.default.php I
believe these settings should be considered for customization:
  * DROP confirmations
  * show executed sql (ShowSql)
  * LeftFrame*, table comments in tooltips
  * displayed rows
  * INSERT form customization
  * default files (DefaultTab*)
  * maybe export/import default options?
  * MySQL manual type
  * window title
  * SQL Query box settings
  * hiding some tabs under one drop-down menu (eg. I have never used
Designer or Query by example for database / Import for single table)
