I guess, on some level I am asking how to go about familiarizing myself with the code. How to approach understanding the logic behind each directory. Is there a map that designates the differences between /lib and /libguile? So on.

Hi there. I think some of you already know me from the Guix mailing
lists. I come from a biosciences background, and am transitioning into
a career in computer science. I plan on starting my masters this year.
A large part of my interest has been in LISPs, and particularly Guile
and other implementations of Scheme.

I know that Guile 3 is right around the corner, and i'd like to be
able to lend a hand in getting it ready for that. I have experience in
both Scheme and C. This would be my first contribution to a C project
though. I am curious if there is some resource that explains where I
may focus my efforts? I know the bug tracker is available for this,
but where else may I focus my attention?

I imagine most of what we need for Guile 3 is in a feature-freeze more
or less, so I just want to get my cards in order before I start
throwing any patches out.
