is the main SPARC kernel mailing list, you probably also want to keep an
eye on what's going on on the LKML
although it is fairly high traffic and you may want to read a summary
there is also a dedicated kernel newbies list / site:
(also see http://kernelnewbies.org/KernelBooks for some of the books
has the architecture specifications, which may be of use.
Is the output of LXR, which I find a very approachable interface to
browsing kernel code, although I know some prefer cscope(1). Beyond
that I think it's a case of finding a bug, fixing it and repeating.
Personally I find the best way of learning a new piece of software is to
pick a task and start hacking.
HTH and good luck.
