There's always the RFCs (e.g. RFC2661) and the Internet-Drafts (e.g.
draft-ietf-l2tpext-security-08.txt, draft-ietf-l2tpext-l2tp-base-01.txt,
draft-ietf-l2tpext-l2tp-ppp-00.txt etc) - and of course any references
therein.  But, yes, they are sometimes more theoretical than practical.

Yes: due to inactivity that codebase was forked.  There's now some
activity at http://sourceforge.net/projects/l2tpd
