Hi Aman,

Thanks for your introduction and welcome to the mailing list.

As you have familiarized yourself with the code of phpMyAdmin, you
should have an idea what part of PMA you could transform to OOP. We
expect you to make a proposal. Just keep in mind that you should be
able to create the class(es), implement it in the current PMA code,
test and document it in the available time frame (12 weeks of 40
working hours).

Good luck with GSoC and submitting your proposal.

Kind regards,
