There was a bit of discussion about the need to improve that structure here last month, which
you might be interested in if you missed it.

A summary:
- continuum-webapp will contain anything you hit from the UI, which you can trace down from
- continuum-core contains most of the actions for the engine
- continuum-model + continuum-store contains the data model for storing things in the database
- continuum-distributed and continuum-buildagent contain the engines when using distributed
builds. There's unfortunately some overlap/duplication.
- other modules that you see handle specific areas of responsibility like releases, notifiers,

I think those will give you the starting point for digging down to the right piece of code,
but you might find yourself needing to trace something.

Don't worry about that, we'll be helpful and appreciative of any efforts you're putting in!
