Hi Dave

Actually I was having my mid-sem exams, so I could not much related to the
project, But in the meantime, I went through
http://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/PgAdmin_Internals but I didn't get much
related to the project.

In the project proposal, I had to answer about the project schedule(How
long will the project take? When can you begin work?) but I am still not
much clear about this question. Could you please help me in answering this
question?
Could you also please suggest me about what I should do now related to the
project to strengthen my GSoC application?

Hoping for a favourable reply.

Thanks
Mukesh Kumar Agrawal.
