Colin already answered this well. GSoC is right now not active. If you
have some minor contributions before the GSoC applications open,
you'll have a better chance of getting chosen, so I recommend browsing
the issue trackers and take on something that looks easy and you feel
comfortable to start with.

If you are more interested in programming (and less about packaging
and systems engineering) take a look at the links Colin sent about
MaraiDB tasks.
