We don't generally recommend starting to code on the actual idea
before the coding period starts. But you are open to research around
the topic, gaining insights from other projects, getting to know the
tools you might want to use to implement this idea, getting a measure
of work that might be required on the existing codebase to support
this etc. This will surely help you in coming up with your proposal.

For getting familiarized with the codebase and getting your
contributions in, you might wish to take a look at the issue tracker
and pick an issue that no one is currently working on (do add a
comment on it saying you are working on it, so that there is less
duplication of efforts). This will help you to understand the codebase
and give you a taste of working with it.

Please let me know if you have any specific queries about the idea and
I will try to answer them as much as I can.
