ListBase is totally a misnomer at this point.  We should just call it DOMProxy, I think.
Is this bug simply about renaming all the occurences of ListBase to DOMProxy (^[^\0]*%24&hitlimit=&tree=mozilla-central) or is there something more to it too ?
I think that's about all there is to it, if you ignore the mobile/ hits in mxr there.
Hi Boris,

I would like to help fixing this bug. Can you brief me on the procedure? I have no knowledge on submitting patches to mozilla.

Check out and . You can also join #introduction on if you want to ask questions.

As far as this bug is concerned, I guess you simply need to rename all the occurences of ListBase to DOMProxy (^[^\0]*%24&hitlimit=&tree=mozilla-central) except the ones in the files inside mobile/ directory, as pointed out by bz in
Yep, comment 4 about covers it.  ;)
Thank you for the pointers. I have set up mercurial and cloned the repository. I will soon submit a patch for review.

Thanks a lot!
Do I need to change only ListBase to DOMProxy or listBase also?
Yeah, it's probably a good idea to change the variable names to reflect the class name.  There will be a number of different variants of these.  There are also method names that have "ListBase" in the name (e.g. IsCacheableListBaseProxy) in ion/IonCache.cpp.

It's good to change all of those to have new names to match the new "DOMProxy" naming scheme.

e.g. the listBase variable names would become domProxy, IsCacheableListBaseProxy would become IsCacheableDOMProxy, etc.
Ok. I got it. 
Now, ListBase will become DOMProxy for each occurence and, listBase will become domProxy for each occurence.
What flags should I request (for review and others below it) while attaching the patch?
I suggest requesting review from and :djvj.

Thank you for the correction sankha93. I was not aware of this.
Hi :djvj,

Is the patch correct? Do I need to modify/change it or add something? Please let me know.
Sorry, got caught up by some other bugs.  Reviewing this now.

Remove 'proxy' here.  "// Shape of the DOMProxy" should be fine.

DOMListShadows should probably become DOMProxyShadows too.
Attachment #759282 - Flags: review?(kvijayan)
Fix on the comment by :djvj. I will change the occurence of DOMListShadow to DOMProxyShadow in the following files now:*%24&hitlimit=&tree=mozilla-central

Will that be it?
Also, the bug has not been assigned to me yet. :)
You also want a sane commit comment.  ;)

Hi :bz and :djvj,
I think I have made the suggested changes. Please review again.

For future reference:

If you're just making minor changes, and addressing comments, you don't have to ask for a re-review.  You can use the previous r+.

If I felt that the requested changes needed a re-review, I would have canceled or r-ed the review.

I'd say you can go ahead and cancel the review request and just commit.
What does that mean? I mean, what should I do exactly? Should I change it to r+?
To cancel a review request, just click on the "Details" link for the patch, and change the flag associated with "Review" to the blank option (available on the pulldown).  It'll remove the review request.

How about this for the commit message:

Bug 875449: rename ListBase to DOMProxy, since these proxies are used for all sorts of objects that aren't in any way like lists.  r=djvj

:bz and :djvj, is everything good now?
What is the next step?
:djvj and :bz,

Will you push it in the tree for me? I donot have the access.
The next step is to mark all the obsolete stuff as obsolete so it's clear what needs to be checked in and then adding the "checkin-needed" keyword.  ;)

That way anyone who checks for those will push it if djvj and I don't get around to pushing things soon enough.
Keywords: checkin-needed

Thank you Boris! I hope this gets checked-in soon. Do we need to change the status of this bug?
No, you can now relax! You have fixed your first bug. :)

The person who will check in, will update the status of the bug.
Alright. I got it now. Thank you Sankha!
Hi RyanVM,

I suppose this means that the patch will be further tested and then pushed to mozilla-central. And then this bug will be closed (tagged as resolved). Is that so?
Yes, exactly :)
Alright, thanks a lot! 
Can I know something about the mozilla try server and can I have a level 1 commit access to it now? Please let me know.
If you want to request Level 1 commit access, you can follow the directions below.

I'd say there are plenty of people involved in this bug who can give you a vouch.
Thank you RyanVM for the guidance!

bz, djvj, sankha93.. can anyone vouch for me? I am filing a bug for level-1 access to the try server.
