All of Xfce is in git, if you go to xfce.org you will find information
on the wiki. I believe there is also a xfce-devel mailing list, which
would probably be a good place to ask for help on getting started.
There are also third-party plugins you could download the source of and
read through or use as a starting point.

Hope this helps, good luck!
