Hi all,
I submitted my Draft Proposal document with buildroot organization to
review my proposal document.
I am looking forward to read your comments and feedback.

About the contribution task,
I read about buildroot and how to patch new packages.
Buildroot is powerful and really more easier than Yocto project. I loved
buildroot very much :-D
I checked the list of packages and I chose wget package to update it.
I successfully prepared the patch file but still not tested.
I hope to test it before the end of this week_before the starting of
midterm exams_ to submit it to the the main list.

Thank you for the useful help on the IRC channel ,
And thank you for the great Buildroot user manual.

Regards.
