I know I can download binary packages from repositories beginning with "deb", but what does deb-src do?
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu natty universe
in /etc/apt/sources.list in Ubuntu 11.04
These are repositories for source packages. See the sources.list man page.
apt-get source [package-name]
