The code is using GTK and written in C so familiarity with both helps.
One can learn parts of GTK while working on such apps, my first contact with GTK
was trying to make the evince patch to build w/o gnome libs 1.5 years ago.

You need to pick an app understand where it uses gnome APIs that can be changed ans
change them, then work with upstream on integrating them
