What would you like to know about it?  Nearly everything I know about how 
dmd works came from stepping through and printfing the source, and reading 
the explanations Don somethings leaves in bugzilla comments.

I found rejects-valid bugs to be the easiest to get started on, because you 
can just search the source code for the error text, insert breakpoints, and 
use the call stack to work out how it ended up there.

Reading dmd commits can be useful too, it can tell you which parts of the 
code are responsible for which problems.

If you post specific questions (on the internals mailing list) I'll try to 
answer them, but it's a little difficult to just explain how it works.
