Please check this page [1] for information about debugging. You can use
'make <module>.clean && make <module> debug=t' if you're only working
with a module of LibreOffice, otherwise, you should use --enable-debug.
The time it takes to build will depend on your computer. For the first
build, I would recommend you to run it overnight, using 'time build' to
see how long it takes. You can find more information on how to speed up
the build here [2]

Once the build is done we suggest you:

* Start with solving some 'beginner' easyHacks [3]
* Solve at least one 'interesting' easyHack
* Start discussing your ideas with possible mentors, and preparing your
* Don't leave your proposal to the last day. Sooner is better.

Also checking the GSoC ideas page first, and trying to choose the
easyHacks related to your probable idea(s) might be a good idea [4], and
perhaps also the page for ideas without a mentor yet [5].

If you ever get stuck (after doing the usual leg-work (re(search), try,
debug etc.) yourself), please don't hesitate to ask your questions
either on the #libreoffice-dev IRC channel, or on this mailing list.
