[swift-evolution] Swift 5: start your engines

Would it be possible to get a series of tutorials on how the systems that make up Swift generally work?  In other words, what are the pieces and how do they fit together?

I think it would be useful even for people who aren’t directly implementing because they can have a better idea of how difficult a change actually is.  It might also help some of us who have been sitting on the sideline to dip our toes in the water.  I know I get a bit lost every time I try to find something in the Swift source, and I am guessing I am not the only one...

Also, there is a increasing number of people — and not just the Core Team or compiler engineers in my team at Apple — who are becoming increasingly comfortable working with the implementation of the compiler and the standard library.
