Yes, studying proprietary source could while working for a similar Free
Software project could be troublesome. But it depends of course on the
situation. See for more background the GNU Classpath wiki:
http://developer.classpath.org/mediation/ClasspathFirstSteps
It also contains lots of suggestions for tasks and projects that would
be super useful and are fine to work on in any case, such as:
        
      * write Mauve test cases 
      * write example applications demonstrating the usage of the API 
      * writing/fixing helper programs (like japitools) and scripts 
      * report bugs 
      * help fixing the documentation 
      * help in other Java-related Free software projects (e.g. virtual
        machine development, Eclipse, GUMP, etc.) 

Hope that helps.

Cheers,

Mark
