First, become intimately familiar with the tool from the user's perspective.
I use PostgreSQL for some major projects, and so I have grown familair with
it. I don't think I could've gotten this familiar without having to
actually use it in a production environment.
Second, start coding extensions to it. I have written C code for both the
client and server side, and have learned tremendously from that.
Finally, start reading code around the parts you are interested in.
I have also found that watching the patches come in will give you a feel for
what is happening. Not only do you see the actual code, but you can watch
the experts talk about it. You can read through the code and then watch as
the server behaves differently. It's pretty amazing.
