GNU synchs are always welcome, at the Lisp level. Synching GNU in
core C is often quite difficult, though.
Also, if there are modules (in the code structure sense, not in the
"loadable ELL" sense) you're interested in, go read about them in the
Internals manual (available from Info). The chances are about even
that there won't be much ;-) so go to the source, and write Info nodes
from what you learn that way.
In particular, Jerry has promised Internals documentation for bignums,
but he's willing to accept help from me; I bet he'd be overjoyed to
get more from you for a platform he doesn't have access to! :-)

Now, _that_ is documented. :-)
