Hi Parnav, we currently don't have a list of "easy to fix" bugs. You can
take a look at the tickets we have on https://developer.pidgin.im and
choose one that you find interesting. There is people on #pidgin that can
help you understand the code and give you some guidance when needed.

Regarding the GSoC, the selection is based mostly on the proposed project.
If you want to increase your chances of being accepted as a student in the
program (if pidgin participates), your best bet is to have a well defined
project with enough research on how you plan to achieve your objective.
