There's the directory named "Documentation" right in the root directory
of the Git source tree . Its subdirectories, "technical" and
"howto", might be of particular interest to you.
I doubt there's any "guide to the sources" though as I do not see any
need for it, and I much more doubt Git developers saw any need for it
either -- anyone who's supposed to delve into Git sources is supposed
to possess (or gain!) a certain level of expertise to do that.
Basically you start with git.c and its main() and then use your
developer tool (IDE with source parsing abilities, vim + ctags,
emacs + whatever, `git grep` etc) to navigate the source tree to
learn about things used from that root function.
