Implement InputCapture portal as Google SoC project?

I'm a newish software developer and I've had my eye on this issue for 
implementing the InputCapture portal in KDE for a while From 
my understanding, completing this would enable apps like Synergy and 
InputLeap to function under KDE's Wayland session, and I use apps like 
this all the time! I have no experience developing for KDE but I would 
love to use this as a launchpad for getting involved. I have a 
sufficient amount of development experience in several 
languages/environments, including C++ and C-based build systems. Does 
this seem like a good project proposal for something like Google's SoC? 
Or would it be too small/convoluted?

In any case, I just wanted to ask here and see if anyone with more 
experience would be willing to serve as a mentor either for a SoC 
project or just in general for this feature implementation.
