Try:

$ guix build --sources=transitive hello

I get:

However, the soure of gzip@1.2.4 appears to be missing here, even though it
is a transitive dependency (via (gnu packages commencement).

For a simpler example, consider the following package definition:

(package
(inherit (specification->package "hello"))
(inputs
(list (package
(inherit (specification->package "hello"))
(inputs (list
(specification->package "gnunet-scheme"))))))))

and run "guix build --sources=transitive -f [source file]". Notice that
the gnunet-scheme package is not included. After some
experimentation, I found that:

* if the package is at the top, its source code is listed
* if it's in the inputs of the package at the top, its source code is listed
* if it's another layer down, it isn't listed anymore (see above example)

Greetings,
Maxime.
