I am Nisarg Jhaveri, a computer science student from India. I am 
interested in participating in GSoC 2014 with phpMyAdmin.

I have proficient knowledge of PHP, JavaScript, jQuery, CSS/CSS3, 
HTML/HTML5 and basic knowledge of MySQL. I have gone through the 
phpMyAdmin code-base and by now I am comfortable with the existing code.

I would like to work on Structure tools project as suggested in Ideas 
List ( 
http://wiki.phpmyadmin.net/pma/GSoC_2014_Ideas_List#Structure_tools ).
1. Central list of columns
     - This may be a very useful feature for phpMyAdmin. Benefits are 
listed at ideas page.
     - Maintain a central list of all existing columns in all tables per 
     - Suggest columns from the list while creating new table or adding 
column to existing table.
     - Alert when someone try to create column with similar name but 
different specification ( like datatype ).
     - I am not sure about the user interface.

2. Database Normalization
     - I don't know much about normalization, but it seems useful and 
interesting. I am not clear about what I will do for this.

Please suggest me more ideas on the project.

Also, I would like if someone could please suggest me some bug/feature 
to work on now.
