The ideas page <http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Summer_coding_ideas_for_2013#Setup_Gitlab_as_a_front_end_for_Fedora_Hosted_git_repositories>
provides a link to Dan's original email and, the underlying part is to
build foundations for "social coding". And, as it is mentioned, the
GSoC deployment may provide the minimum viable installation but it
sets the basis for a long term involvement.
I'd recommend that you read up on how the current git-based
infrastructure works (for Fedora) and, also try out installation and
setting up of Gitlab over a set of mock (but populated) repos.
Of course, Dan and other mentors would be able to provide you with
much specific work items to chase down.
