Re: [Bash-announce] source of tar, gzip, gunzip, bzip, bunzip2 and compr

    am not quite sure, if this is the right site for this question.

help-gnu-utils@gnu.org or bug-bash@gnu.org would have been better, but
your mistake is understandable.  Cc-ing bug-bash here, since this is
certainly not an announcement.
    Where e.g. I can obtain the source code of the commands like following:
    tar, gunzip, compress, and gzip ???

You can download the sources for most GNU packages (including those)
from http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu.

    In the bash-source code, the commands (about 3300 bash commands) are
    not included with their own source code ???

They are not bash commands.  They are their own packages.

Hope this helps,
