My student team would like to take on bug 568213.
We're required to contribute to an open source project for a college

What is the general procedure for taking ownership of a bug with
intentions of creating a patch?

In this case it should be plenty sufficient to comment on the bug,
expressing your intention to provide a patch.

Adding some detail like expected dates doesn't hurt. Also, you can add
some implementation specifics and infrequent status updates there.

However, please do keep in mind that bugzilla is not a good place for
discussion or questions. These should better be directed to the
project's mailing list or IRC channel. You can talk to the developers
and other interested parties there.

Enjoy the experience!

Also there's lot's of bugs with the tag "gnome-love" that maintainers
did for people that want to get involved around the module.
Search for the module you find interesting (probably an exciting module
would be easier to get students attention), choose a bug that fit's your
needs and code. Also provide multiple patches to get maintainers (if
it's a big feature) and follow maintainers advices.

If you have more questions feel free to contact this mailing list or the
module you want to hack if it's specific.

Good luck!
