Available hacking guides or where to start

as you maybe have already noticed, I'm trying to build my own tortoise
project from the trunk source code. The background is, that I'm
participating in a university project at the Ruhr Universität Bochum.
The goal of this project is to develop a tortoise version, that is
able to encrypt files before uploading to a SVN server. We are well
aware of the fact that you can't diff encrypted files and we are
therefore ruining one of the main features of subversion. But our
supervising tutor wants to use that system to store binaries, where
diff doesn't make sense anyway. The cause of the encryption is to
protect those binaries, in case the subversion server gets compromised
by a hostile party. The main question in this project will be how to
distribute the keys for the en-/decryption. But that's just some
background information on myself.
Actually I am setting up a debug environment in a virtual machine to
distribute to my colleagues. Our first goal is to understand the code.
Therefore I'm asking you if there are any documents that help us
achieving that goal. I already found the trunk\doc\source\hacking.txt,
but as far as I can see, that document only explains how to hack the
Do you have any tips or advice on where to start analysing the
sourcecode? That would be great.

Thanks in advance,
