  Twisted doesn't use CVS anymore.  You want to download the released version, 1.3.0, or the packaged version for your platform, or use SVN to check it out.

  PySerial and PyCrypto are optional.  As long as you're only interested SIP, you won't miss them.

  The IRC channel (#twisted / irc.freenode.net), the mailing list, the source code.  I doubt you'll find much documentation on using the SIP code, beyond the automatically generated API documents.  Reading the UDP howto and the cred howto is probably a good start, since SIP relies on both of those aspects of Twisted.
