Sounds good!

A good place to start would be the ideas page in the Mailman wiki:


If you find something that interests you I think it would be best to 
share your thoughts with one (or more?) of the Mentors before you apply 
- either by posting/subscribing to mailman-developers at python.org, or by 
directly talking to one of us on IRC. We're always happy to discuss 
ideas, plans, concerns,... and then find the right mentor for your project.

For the technical part: Mailman is registered under the umbrella of the 
Python Software Foundation, so the place to file your application would 
be the PSF's SoC page:


You can also find an application template there with the most basic 
information needed to apply.

So... That's it for a start, I guess. My nick on IRC (#mailman on 
freenode.net) is florianf. Feel free to ping me if you have any further 
questions! (I'm UTC +2 hours, usually online during work hours.)
