About the only way you will get beter coments is if you
write them.

As software systems go Asterisk is, in my opinion, in terms is
size right on the border of what one person _can_ understand
It's not quite what I'd call a "large software system" but is
of such a size and complexity that it should take a competent
programmer conciderable time (weeks) to come up to speed on.

Typically when you come to a new system the best way to learn
is to try a very well defined task that required only changes
isolated in one area.  

Doxigen is kind of nice because it hyperlinks the code so you
can jump around but I find I don't figure out how something
works by pasive reading.  I have to go in with the idea that I'm
going to make a change and then I'll learn how that little part
asociated by my change works.   Learn enough little parts that
way and you'll know the whole thing maybe some day

Many professionals, maybe _all_ professionals working in the
aerospace industry don't even try to understand the software
that is outside thier little corner of the project, it's just
not a productive use of time.  As an example, I _may_ have worked
on the launch of those two rovers that are up on Mars now.
I'm pretty sure of it as I was here when they went up and I do
work on most Delta vehicle telemetry processing but I don't
normally check or ask about what is up in the payload fairing.
