I suggest you read up on it then. Look at the FAQs for some starting points.

For people who don't know much about C programming are ill-advised to try 
working on the Linux kernel (I would think); likewise, people who don't know 
much about XML maybe should learn more about XML before trying to rewrite 
bits of Cocoon. Thus I suggest you should spend a few weeks if possible 
making a significant, realistic website based around Cocoon (and maybe other 
XML software) - you will learn a lot that way, especially if you come up 
against problems that are not best addressed by Cocoon 1.8 but which are 
being addressed in Cocoon 2 - and then maybe you can start working on the 
Cocoon internals. Most development work is now focused on Cocoon2 but I 
suggest you familiarise yourself with Cocoon 1 before you look at Cocoon 2.

Since this is a high-volume mailing list (and cocoon users even more so) 
please don't post questions like "I don't know anything about Cocoon, please 
explain it all to me", because that just irritates people, when there are 
PLENTY of docs. Okay that's not exactly what you said, but... it came across 
that way.
