Did you mean "QUAKE IS NOT LICENSED AS FREE SOFTWARE"? I assume you didn't... but anyway, I see what you are getting at.
Quake(tm) is NOT Free software. Only the source code to build the quake ENGINE, the QuakeWorld Client, the QuakeWorld Server and such are GPL... Quake the actual game was NOT released at all including any of the data, models, maps, etc. If you read Carmack's comments, you will understand that.
> thats all I want, is the QuakeLives source code
You will get every piece of source from the project, EXCEPT the close source code that will not have any part of the original quake in it. So... You have your wish (well, kinda - cuase I'm sure you thought you got the proxy stuff too... sorry to disappoint there)
