I was writing proposal and got stuck, it would be great if I can get to
know the specific deliverables for the task(as smart art feature is big, so
what exactly should be introduced), bugs  or any document related to it.

About bug https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37932,
I have gone through some files in https://cgit.freedesktop.
org/libreoffice/core/tree/oox/source/drawingml/diagram and till now what I
have understand is, I have to
a). Improving the rendering of the shapes(if there is any such shape)
b). Add some SmartArts : Some smartarts like composite, cycle is already
implemented in diagramlayoutatoms.cxx. Basically diagramlayoutatoms.cxx
include cases which needs to be implemented with the algorithms mentioned
in OOXML Documentation.

I also want to ask about producing logs, I am doing these following steps :
1. Building debug by ./autogen.sh --enable-debug --without-doxygen then make
debugrun. Please let me know if I am building it incorrect.
2. Setting required environment variable - in this case :
export SAL_LOG=”+INFO.oox.ww8+WARN”

How will I get the logs that will helpful in fixing rendering of shapes or
such problems.

According to https://pad.documentfoundation.org/p/UX-GSoC_Ideas I have to
work on https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92902 as a part
of SmartArt editing in impress, but there are no such code pointers or any
such lead that can help for this bug.

Thanking you,
Ekansh Jha
