Okay, I found source code in 8 embedded jars:

% find hadoop-0.23.0 -name '*-sources.jar'
hadoop-0.23.0/hadoop-mapreduce-examples-0.23.0-sources.jar
hadoop-0.23.0/share/hadoop/common/hadoop-common-0.23.0-test-sources.jar
hadoop-0.23.0/share/hadoop/common/hadoop-common-0.23.0-sources.jar
hadoop-0.23.0/share/hadoop/hdfs/hadoop-hdfs-0.23.0-test-sources.jar
hadoop-0.23.0/share/hadoop/hdfs/hadoop-hdfs-0.23.0-sources.jar
hadoop-0.23.0/hadoop-mapreduce-test-0.23.0-sources.jar
hadoop-0.23.0/hadoop-mapreduce-tools-0.23.0-sources.jar
hadoop-0.23.0/hadoop-mapreduce-0.23.0-sources.jar

It's awkward at best to build and run tools like RAT on such a release.
 I'd much prefer a tarball that directly includes a buildable
source-file tree, more-or-less an 'svn export' to vote on.  Folks should
not primarily evaluate binaries when voting.  The ASF primarily produces
and publishes source-code so voting artifacts should be optimized for
evaluation of that.  End-user artifacts should be generated by the
source code.
