That's sounds really interesting, what did you do at ZENODO, if you don't mind
to share that information.

Getting familiar with the codebase especially
src/mlpack/methods/reinforcement_learning/ should be the first step. Running the
tests: (rl_components_test.cpp) 'bin/mlpack_test -t RLComponentsTest' and
(q_learning_test.cpp) 'bin/mlpack_test -t QLearningTest' should help to
understand the overall structure.

If you like you can work on a simple RL method like (stochastic) Policy
Gradients and use that to jump into the codebase, but don't feel obligated.

Also, the methods listed on the ideas page are just suggestions, so if you have
an interesting method in mind you like to work on, let me know.

Thanks,
Marcus
