good to hear you're interested!

best to start by doing a build of LibreOffice master, and then creating 
a patch for one of the "easy-hack" bugs that you can find via the Wiki 
page below; once you're done, upload the patch to gerrit.

for details regarding this year's GSoC, see:

(note that Google hasn't actually announced participating mentoring 
organizations yet)

don't hesitate to ask questions on IRC channel #libreoffice-dev.

happy hacking!
