The source code for LaTeX and its packages as well as for their  
documentation (all the .dtx files etc.) isn't included. This is  
because gwTeX is based on TeXLive for the binaries and teTeX for all  
the TeX support files (including LaTeX etc.), and teTeX doesn't  
include these source files (for space considerations).

I doubt Thomas Esser (the "te" in teTeX) would have done this if this  
wasn't compliant with the LPPL.

The source code can be downloaded from CTAN at will.
