The wiki contains several introductory pages.  I would
suggest to start with:

Some documentation may be out of date or simply incorrect.  If you
find an error, please get a wiki account and fix it so whoever
comes after you will find better documentation.

The first step to start working on X would be to succeed in
rebuilding the modular tree, including the X server.
You should get somewhat familiar with the auto{conf,make}.

Then, it all depends on what your interests are.  Feel free
to ask more specific questions when you're done with the above
