In Debian, AFAIK some packages are maintained in Subversion (famously team-pkg-gnome), while some are maintained in git, and others in some other VCS.
Is there a way to know where the source of a package is without doing an
apt-get source $PACKAGENAME?
I tried three methods and all failed :-
$apt show $PACKAGENAME $aptitude show $PACKAGENAME $apt-cache show $PACKAGENAME
none of the above are able to give/share this information.
Is there anyway to get the information. I need to know the source repo. name and whether it is in git, svn or some other version control.
