Oh, then sorry.  I think you're out of luck.  It would be a huge
amount of resources for fedora to host the exploded contents of all
10k+ packages (let along keeping multiple versions or revision control
history for those upstream projects).  It's much better to use the
gitweb url to browse through packages you care about, then follow the
Url tag in the spec file to the upstream project's home.  There you
can usually find an online source broswer for their code.

That said, doing it this way is painfully slow and tedious.  Disk
space is cheap and bandwidth is generally so as well (where I am
anyway) that I find it much easier to clone projects so that I can
grep them.  Even better for upstream projects that use git, where I
can do things like 'git log -S"some string"' and find any commits that
added or removed "some string".

To each his own though.  Good luck.
