Okay. Since I would like to study the material, may I have pointers to
relevent source files?

I recently started working at a new place, and I'm learning a lot of
new stuff here, such as how to handle a project that relies on outside
projects. It probably seems like an obvious thing to most people, but
my previous experience has been with embedded code almost in a vacuum
with respect to other projects. not much use of open source there.

With application development, it seems so much different. I'm going to
have deliverables with components from the wild, and I'll need to have
some sort of entirely different process to think about risks of things
being introduced into my "home" project. I digress.
