Just to clarify: The complete source code is not available as Maemo is
not 100% open source but maybe 80% (according to Nokia).
For your interest, reasons for components not being open source are
listed here: http://wiki.maemo.org/Why_the_closed_packages

You will not get full functionality without these closed source parts.
Mer (http://wiki.maemo.org/Mer) might be an interesting alternative
