Hi Varun, both of those projects would be creating plugins rather than 
working on Core itself, so if you're interested in becoming a Core 
contributor then you might want to consider some of the Core projects.

If you'd like to apply for a plugin project, then it's better to have 
experience developing plugins, but if you'd like to work on a Core 
project then creating Core patches is better.
