The patches and sources directories hold everything.

If the RSB is configured to download a patch this tool will download it. The
kernel and libbsd tend to be built based on a commit in their respective repos
the RSB downloads a tarball of the source that is uses.

Note, the RSB supports a released mode that is controlled by the VERSION file in
the root directory of the RSB. This can be used to deploy source locally. The
release scripts ...

... do this when creating a release.

The patch link looks fine and I can download it with my browser. I wonder if
this is a Windows thing?
