That is a strange question. I guess the answer is 'Yes'
It depends on what you want to be changed in your new version.
For example, I would guess that you would take an interest in making
your own user environment/interface. Well, that would involve doing
stuff from X11 most likely and most probably more of configuration
changes than code changes.
Then there is a whole long list of things people want added/fixed/
modified on the system. You might want to check that out for
Probably you need to learn a lot more about the existing system
before you go to making a custom version.
