Learning and Hacking L4

I have had some interest in os development and theory for quite some
time now, and a particular interest in L4. I'm a newbie, but I've read
through a lot, and have done some os programming for fun in the past.

My question is: what is your advice on learning and hacking L4?

I've read through quite a bit of the documentation, but reading
through specs does not seem like a good way to really understand; it
seems like too much to digest at once. And of course, the purpose of a
specification is to specify, not explain. I've browsed through source
code, but that is even worse.

I'm sorry if my question is overly broad, but I'd appreciate any
advice that anyone can spare.
