Hi Shaoting,

Yes. I don't think Ubuntu is unique at all amongst distributions in this regard.

You can find the source for every published Ubuntu package on Launchpad.
For example:

There's an experimental git view you might find easier to use:

Note that in the case of gcc-5, there are an extensive set of patches that are dynamically applied to the tree before the package is built.
This is driven from debian/rules.patch via debian/rules. The patches appear to be in debian/patches/ but I think they're selectively added, so you'll need to do some digging to understand exactly what applies in your case. Launchpad also stores build logs, available through the first link above, if that helps you match things up.

Hope that helps,
