The source to contributed packages is in <CRAN mirror>/src/contrib/PACKAGES.html. You can find your CRAN mirror by looking at the CRAN entry in options("repos"). (You may need to call chooseCRANmirror() first, if it hasn't already been called.)

The source to base packages is in the R source, also on CRAN.
