My answer to this question is always: Find something that bothers you 
personally and then fix it. This will keep your motivation much higher than us 
proposing something random to you that you may not even be using inside 

If you really would like to work on something that we'd like to see, then I'd 
propose a proper plugin for clang-format, i.e. with a nice configuration GUI 
and so on.

But really, just come up with something you think could be improved, and/or 
browse through our bug list, and then keep nagging us with questions or 
feedback and input on what you are trying to do.

Laurent already answered that, I think.

Cheers, and welcome to KDevelop - looking forward to your patches.
