This is great! I think you're ready to now draft up a proposal. What I
recommend you do is write something up in Google Drive and then share it to
me and I'll share it with the rest of the OSL team. I recommend you read up
on the GSoC Student Guide [1] on how to write a good proposal.

Once you have a draft proposal, we can comment on it and work with you to
improve. And then finally you can submit it to Melange.

Do you have enough information on what we're looking for on this project as
far as features?
