Nobody said it would be easy. I too had my share of this while I was trying to
convert kamailio modules. Not everything can be documented in readmes, for
example, there is a lot of changes in kamailio internals that I didn't
understand and I had to ask Daniel, Henning, and others.

If you need to find the author of a particular change then you can use 'git
blame' and talk to them directly. But I am afraid there is no way around
browsing through the code and trying to spot what is different.

But yes, I find it reasonable to ask from people that all new code must be
documented somehow (readme, wiki,...).
