The code is only an example and this special feature is implemented in 
the meantime.

Therefore I have asked, whether you have already found an area, in which 
you are interested. Or have find an "easy" bug to fix?

If you will only play around to see the work-flow, you can change for 
example a string in the *.src file and notice the changed string in the 
product later.

You change your local source code and then you build it again. Most 
times changes are not far-reaching and you can simple rebuild it. You 
get a new version of AOO in the folder instsetoo_native. Look for a 
subfolder "Apache_OpenOffice" there. And then some steps deeper in this 
folder tree the subfolder "install". There you will find a version of 
AOO of the same kind as you can download it.

For this version you do an "administative" install. For not to disturb 
any other user folder, you edit the file bootstrap.ini (in case of 
Windows) and change the destination of the UserInstallation, for example 
to UserInstallation=$ORIGIN/../..

Then you can start this AOO using the file soffice.exe. Now you should 
see the changes you have made.

If you think, it is all well done, you generate a patch and attach the 
patch to the issue in Bugzilla, set the drop-down-list there to "request 
for review" and write a mail to this list with a request for review.

In some cases you cannot simple rebuild it, but have to make a new, 
clean build by first removing the old building output.

When you ask here, you should always tell on which system do you build, 
because some files are named different. I have got only a build on Windows.

Kind regards
Regina
