The best place to start digging in would be the source code :). Apart 
from the source code, some of these documents/articles can help improve 
your understanding of GlusterFS better:


Jeff's blogs at: http://hekafs.org

You can also hop on to #gluster-dev on freenode where most of the 
developers hang out.

You can also find a list of todos in GlusterFS here:


Raghavendra (in CC) is also aggregating a new set of todo items. You 
should see that in the gluster.org wiki shortly.
