It was a once in a lifetime experience and I enjoyed every bit of it. I learnt so many new things from designing a feature for a software system in real life, thinking all the edge cases and making it full proof. Apart from that I worked closely with my mentor Samuel Giddins (seggidins) during the GSoC period and would like to thank him for guiding me at every step of the way and giving me the opportunity to work on new features for Bundler all by myself. Also I thank Bundler and the GSoC Team for giving me this platform which allowed me to learn so many new things and work with many different people in a team. I hope to keep contributing to Bundler and add many more features to it.
