At it's most basic, the application "kate" works similarly 
to Window's notepad. This being Linux there are several 
ways to do what  was requested, the easiest being:

from the desktop use the key combination of <alt><F2> 
then enter

kate /etc/apt/sources.list

into the dialog. 

The Window's way works, too:

click on the big "K" in the lower left of the display
click on utilities
click on kate
when kate opens click in the menu bar click on "file" 
the "open" the entering /etc/apt/sources.list into the 
address dialog.

OR...if you have "katapult" installed (and I think it is by 
default, not sure) from the desktop <alt><spacebar> then 
type kate and press the <enter> key then navagate 
to /etc/apt/sources.list in the normal way. 

Once kate starts it's just like notepad...edit, select all 
(<ctrl><a> or use the mouse), then edit, copy (<ctrl><c>), 
move the focus back to your mail reply and click edit paste
