Looking at the main GnuCash website was good advice.

At the left side you can find the following links:

Source Docs: http://svn.gnucash.org/docs/HEAD/
Browse Source Code: http://svn.gnucash.org/trac/browser/
SVN Access: http://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/Subversion

If you seriously want to hack on GnuCash, you most probably want to
get the HEAD branch (version 2.3.x), not the stable branch (2.2.x).

With regard to IDEs: Probably most developers edit the source
with emacs or vi or any other editor and just type make on the
shell prompt. Some developers have reported using eclipse.
