I realized that it is a meta package,

But how to get the source then. The first dilemma with me is that i am not
able relate to the package which i actually wanna customize. I looked in for
Ubuntu Developer Wiki but in vain.

I will tell you, my actual need: I am building some business solution
applications for local companies here. Want i want is, to customize Launcher
UI / Desktop Look and feel (not from theme manager), and also language
translations* all in Ubuntu Netbook Remix Packages*. Now i really have a
faintest idea what packages i shall select for since this is the first time
i have been doing a Ubuntu Development.

I hope this is sufficient feed for u to churn me some advice.
