Linux net stack, adding functionality

I wish to add a custom protocol to the linux stack.  I am looking for information on its structure.  I would prefer not to go directly to the source code as that is a bit to much of a step.

I am after any documents on it's strucure and perhaps a web site devoted to the development of the stack, so I can talk to the authors.

Any help would be greatly received

I would suggest subscribing to the Linux-Kernel mailing list, and posing this question to them.  Send an email to majordomo@vger.rutgers.edu with the words "subscribe linux-kernel" in the body.

For others reading this question. Please don't email that list with newbie questions, its a technical/development discussion area. Thanks. :)

You may also want to check out comp.os.linux.development.system on usenet.

I have joined the linux-networking one a while back and have posted on comp.os.linux.networking, but I am still looking for documents on the topic.  I would like a whitepaper of the development archive from the actual project
