Hi Yotam,

welcome to GHC development! :)

I'll try to give you a few pointers although I'm not really familiar with
this part of of the code.

* Read the module header at the top of DsMeta.hs.
* Note that DsMeta exposes a single function, dsBracket. All code in DsMeta
is ultimately used via this entrypoint.
* Look up the types that dsBracket and the functions between it and repE
accept and return.
* You may find background info in the GHC Commentary:
* Join #ghc on IRC and ask away! :)

Hope that helps! Have fun!
