Sure. And welcome!

Did you read the task description? It includes a link to
https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/mysql-test/ with a lot of information
about mysql-test framework that uses mysqltest client.

You can clone MariaDB repository at https://github.com/MariaDB/server
The mysqltest.cc is under the client/ directory
Test files - written in mysqltest language - are mostly under
mysql-test/ directory, but not always. The documentation (KB link above)
explaines the concepts.

MDEV-12130 has two related bugs, you might want to take a look.
If you plan on applying for this project - try to fix them.
