No problem, ask away, that's what this period of the application process is
for.  6802 and 6214 are mostly asking for the same thing, which is
basically to allow users to pass in a list of labels to scatterplot for the
coloring and have the dots colored accordingly and then autogenerate a
legend from that. I think #7383 might be a good place to start in terms of
the proposal, but that if you're still confused you should start by reading
the colormap and normalization documentation.,

I think you should work on whatever appeals to you/will make your own work
easier. Also, make sure to follow the mpl contribution guide:
