Indeed, these days when I see "student" my mind switches in GSoC mode :)
So Harpreet, ignore my first advice about Google Summer of Code student
checklist, just follow my second advice.

In general, people wanting to help should have a look at FAQ 7.3 in
phpMyAdmin's Documentation.html. Of course we welcome your specific
questions on this list.
