The next formal step is to submit a proposal through the GSoC system. This won't be open until April 22/2013. As we get closer to the date, we'll post more specific information.
In the meantime, you should gather as much information as you can about the problem and possible solution so that you can put together a very good proposal. We'll be looking for evidence that you will be able to complete the work.
Note that I've stated on the entry that I am not a committer on JDT and have almost no inside information regarding what needs to be done to make this work. That means that as a mentor, I'll be able to help you with things like general Eclipse plug-in development, but I won't have quick answers with regard to how to hook into the Java editor. With luck, we'll be able to attract the attention of a JDT committer to assist.
I recommend that you take a look at the "Coffee Bytes" project to see what they did and try and get a sense for how you might approach the problem. My sense (based entirely on Dani's comments in the bug) is that it is a relatively easy plug-in.
Keep in mind that we have a very well-defined intellectual property management process here at Eclipse. If we end up wanting to copy (or fork) some of the Coffee Bytes code, there is a process that needs to be followed. We'll discuss this more as we get closer to the start of implementation.
