We've recently prepared a list of tasks for GSoC students.
See https://mariadb.com/kb/en/google-summer-of-code-2014/
You can look it through.
I'd recommend you to wait for a couple of weeks, until we know what
students were accepted and which projects from this page above are
taken. Then you can pick up any project that's still free.

If you want something really simple to start from, here's our bug
tracker: mariadb.org/jira you can search for bugs, and select something
minor that you can do in an hour or two, for example.

Okay, then any project from the GSoC page above might be too big.
In our Jira you can also search for tasks, not only bugs. There are
simple tasks too.

Pretty much any task will require that.

Yes, of course. Feel free to ask your questions here or on our 
IRC channel #maria on FreeNode.
