Hi Tushar,
as your mentor for this activity, let me express my own deep welcome to 
the Apache Syncope community.

Please consider that you are currently in the "Community Bonding Period" 
(Apr 22 - May 22), where you are expected to get ready to start 
contributing full time.

Community Bonding activities may involve:

     * Becoming familiar with the community practices and processes. 
(This often involves a mix of observation and participation.)
     * Participating on Mailing Lists / IRC / etc. (Not just lurking.)
     * Setting up their development environment.
     * Small (or large) patches/bug fixes. (These do not need to be 
directly related to their GSoC project.)
     * Participating in code reviews for others. (Even someone who isn't 
familiar with the project can contribute by pointing out potential 
inefficiencies, bad error handling, etc.)
     * Working with their mentor and other org members on refining their 
project plan. This might include finalizing deadlines and milestones, 
adding more detail, figuring out potential issues, etc.
     * If you are already familiar with the organization, you could be 
helping others get involved in the community.
     * Reading (and updating!) documentation they will need to 
understand to complete their project.
     * Reporting or replicating bugs.

In general, I would prefer to keep the communication here, open for the 
whole community. You are naturally free to contact me privately as 
you've been doing so far.
Should you need live interaction, let's meet on the #apache-syncope IRC 
channel - I am generally available there from 9.00 AM CET until 6.00 PM CET
