Dear Atul,

thanks for showing the interest in a GSoC program in the context of GnuCash. 
Obviously you already found our wiki page, which is indeed the starting point 
to get involved into the project.

HOWEVER: So far GnuCash is a "normal" C program intended to be used on the PC 
as a single user. Hence, as a part of this project you would need to come up 
with a good idea on how to get the data from the Android device into the 
database of the existing PC-based GnuCash program. Currently the PC-based 
GnuCash has some data import functions, but those might not be suitable to a 
regular repeated import of data from a different device. This aspect needs 
some serious thoughts during your application phase, so that your project 
application already contains some viable proposals on how to deal with this 

Best Regards,

Christian Stimming
