I would like to work on this. Should I build a mockup first?

Thank for your interest in working on this. It is not strictly necessary to start with a mockup, but it would probably be useful to work together with the KDE VDG team.
@nicolasfella already created a repository for this (but there doesn't seem to be code yet), so maybe you can work together if you want.
