"Source code
In accordance with our philosophy and licensing guidelines, source code
is made available for all packages in Ubuntu. It can be browsed and
downloaded from our archive. Alternatively, one can easily retrieve
source code from an networked Ubuntu system by using a terminal to run
the command "apt-get source <package>" where <package> is the name of
the source package that you would like to download and unpack."

Should be a start atleast.
