Source for Fedora 14 is here
http://archive.fedoraproject.org/pub.../source/SRPMS/

If you prefer git,
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Using_Fedora_GIT

Fedora is quite large, you will have to be more specific about which elements you wish to modify.

as per the above link
the DEAD fedora 14 rpms have been moved to the historical archives
they were last updated in 2011

However Fedora 14 is 4 versions and very soon to be 5 versions OUT OF DATE

Fedora 14 went End Of Life back in 2011-12-08
2 YEARS ago

it has not received any security updates in 2.5 years -- not good .

You would NOT use a windows OS that has NOT had updates installed for 2 years
so why use a Linux OS that has NOT had security updates installed for over 2 YEARS


Please stay current and install Fedora 18 ,
Then in July do a new clean install of fedora 19

Source code is not part of an install.
Source code is only used for building the binary packages,
that provide the executable and libraries, etc.

the link in the second post is also only to the initial release
it has NO updates ( as in none of the LAST updates)

http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora-sec.../source/SRPMS/
and the very last updated files
http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora-sec...ates/14/SRPMS/

but they are from 2011
