Yes, a similar question(s) has been asked and answered.  Thus, it seems that
the better
question to ask would be the following:

I am interested in adding the following enhancement(s):

enhancement a - supporting description
enhancement b - supporting description
enhancement c - supporting description
enhancement N - supporting description

Thus, I was wondering, what part(s) of the system should I focus my
to implement these enhancement(s)?

In short, you might want to describe what you're wanting to do for people
to better assist you in achieving your goal.

Good luck,
