Hello everyone!

I'm Ayush Tomar, junior undergrad in Computer Science from New Delhi,
India. I love C++ coding and working on machine learning and information
retrieval project. I was exploring the GSoC ideas for Xapian and the
project on "Adding Weighting Schemes" looked really interesting to me. I
wanted to work on text mining/IR this summer and this idea seems perfect!

I have gone through the getting started guide and started to understand of
how the Xapian code is connected and identifying which parts I need to
focus on for the project. I have started to research what similar and new
schemes could be added to Xapian. It'll be great help if someone could
suggest a weighting scheme on which I should focus for the entry level
task. This will help me get to the coding part quickly and help in writing
a proposal which is strong both in terms of research (possible schemes) and
shows my ability to code according to requirements of Xapian.

I hope I'm not too late to start and could work on something substantial
till the proposal drafting period starts.
