If you actually want to work on the code, you'll have to build
LibreOffice by yourself in order to test your modifications.

The use of "lode" is not mandatory, you can also manually do the
required setup, but be aware that lode will simplify the setup and
you're more on your own if you encounter any issues while doing things
by yourself.
