How can I contribute to the efforts of GIMP being able to open a 16 bit image?

As far as I'm aware, GIMP is still not able to open a 16-bit image.
I am specifically interested in having it being able to open a 16-bit grayscale image. Does anyone know if there is any organized effort for this?
I am not an expert programmer by any means, but I have worked with many different scripting and programming languages understand enough to be able to help... i think... as long as someone told me in a nutshell exactly what needs to get done, where the existing code is that I am contributing towards, what programming languages I need to have installed etc.
I find pages like sourceforge.net (where I think the GIMP effort is centralized?) not too user friendly for answering broad questions like mine. I think here on mf I'll get a much better answer! thanks for any info.
and this would require very low-level programing mfortable with (how low-level programming does it require?)
