To get some help - Bug 38835

Hello there,

I hope to working on the bug of Bug 38835 - strip out non-trivial globals before main
 I understood the problem there but I don't have any idea of how to start the bug fixing. Since I have the average
 programming skills, if anyone can guide me how to start the process, it will be a great help.

Thank in advance,
Gayan

Re: To get some help - Bug 38835

Hi Gayan,

You first step would be to setup a LibreOffice core build of current master and start working from there.  Platform specific instructions on how to setup a build as well as other useful starter info can be found on the Wiki:

Then you need to register on Bugzilla and assign issue 38835 to yourself using the (take) action next to Assignee label. As soon as you have a workable patch for us you need to register on Gerrit and submit it for review:

Let us know of your progress and if you get stuck, need help or anything in between please e-mail the dev list or hop on to irc at freenode.net on channel #libreoffice-dev.


Regards,
Shinnok

Re: To get some help - Bug 38835

Hi Gayan,

Always use the original thread discussion you started on this list and reply to all, this way it's easier to keep track of the conversation backlog.

Congratulations on getting LO built and running! The next step for you is to look  over the comments in Bugzilla and try to figure out if there's any cases left where static globals for non-trivial types/functions could be changed. Issue #3885 is not a bug per-se, but an improvement to the code base.

Use the "git grep" commands that Jan posted in the comments to find your way around the code and identify potential issues. Also take a look over the commits already merged for this issue by following the links. Another way to find out what work has already been done for this issue is to check gerrit.libreoffice.org for the tracking number #3885:

If you need more help, you can ask in the comments section in Bugzilla.

I have build the core and observed that it is running and I'm currently work from there. Just in case can I know that how to re-create the bug so that I can get better understanding of the bug.  
I already have assigned to the bug in Bugzilla.
