Uhh...Where Is The Source?

I can't find any source code for the LinuxPPC applications. I've been going
around in circles trying to find ".c" files for fetchmail, sendmail, vim, etc.
Every directory in /src, /etc, and such seems to have an "SRPMS" or "RPMS"
directory in it which, themselves have "SRPMS" and "RPMS" directories...which
makes me confused.
For comparison, I checked around on the internet for other Linux packages and
found the source files as ".tar.gz" files. I also did see some kernel code on
my machine, but not all of the other code.
What's with all the same-name directories in different locations? Where
exactly is the source? Is this a Red Hat thing?
I feel like I'm lost in a large amusement park and going around in circles.
Yes, I'm pretty new here.
