Okay - cool. If I were to "understand grok", I would:

 * First understand martian: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/martian (I
wouldn't bother looking at the code, unless you REALLY have to)
 * Next understand Grok configuration:
 * Make sure you understand the concept of adapters

Brandon Rhodes did some great work with the doc-strings across Grok,
so be sure to read those too.

The test work involves a package called manuel.fakemodule, so you
could also take a look at:

 * http://packages.python.org/manuel/
 * http://pypi.python.org/pypi/manuelpi.fakemodule

Additionally, I assume you're familiar with SVN?

That should keep you busy until I complete the tutorial. :-)
