There are several projects that control how projects' pages are displayed and 
how they get rendered.

The first is the Hovercraft project; it contains the actual templating engine; 
you can view it here:

The base templates that are used throughout are in the look project; you can 
find them here:

When requests come in, they all get rewritten to the 
hovercraft/sandbox/php/index.php page.  It takes in two main GET strings - 
project and page.  A sample rewritten request looks like this:

We don't currently have the rewrite rules available in CVS yet; that's 
something we're still working on.

I'm not sure if that's enough information to get things working, but try 
checking those two projects out and see if that helps at all.
