Basically, you will need to mount it as an iso:

# mount -p loop a.iso /mnt/user/Mountpoint

This iso is not an install media, rather an option for developers to edit the source of Fedora. I don't recommend this to newbies.

To see the contents of this folder, execute:

# ls -lrt /mnt/user/Mountpoint

In there, you will see a bunch of .src.rpms and configuration files to compile. To view the contents (or metadata) of the source rpm:

# rpm --query --package --info foo-1.0-1.src.rpm

Then, to extract the rpm from its source,

# rpm2cpio foo-1.0-1.src.rpm | cpio --extract --make-directories --verbose

After extracting, you will receive a .tar.gz or other archive in a directory like /usr/src/.../...

# cd /usr/src/fedora/SOURCES/

Next, extract the archive:

# tar -xvzf foo-1.0-1.tar.gz

Compile!

# ./configure

OR

# make

After that, follow this detailed guide of building source rpms:
