Hi Gaurav,

 Thanks for your interest Xapian and Weighting Schemes project. Xapian
follows group mentoring approach
<>, it's always
preferable to send email to Xapian Mailing List (
instead of personal email to mentors.

The GSoC Guide ( is the best
place to start. It also lists how you can find task and bug ( to start

I don't think there are any GoodFirstBug with touches same code as
Weighting Schemes, but feel free to pick any bug tagged GoodFirstBug to
start getting familiar with code.
