Basically there is no such document.  There are some presentations here
that give good overviews:


I've written my own "Translator 101" series and some articles about some
of the more important components here:


I'm also giving a presentation about replication this afternoon at Red
Hat Summit, and (I think) I can publish those slides.  I have plans to
write a more comprehensive design document / programmers' guide, but I
keep getting thwarted by other demands so I haven't really been able to
get beyond a table of contents.  If you have specific questions, I and
others would be glad to answer as best we're able.
