I need some online service that gives me all existing source packages in Debian.

A source package is something like this:


It contains several binary packages.


The same recipe as given in answer to your previous question works here too: the list of “source” sections in the various suites has an “All source packages” entry which leads to a page listing all the source packages, as HTML or as compressed text.

  • Do you know if there is a single file, where I can offline extract the information which binary packages belong to a certain source package – JohnnyFromBF Mar 31 '19 at 14:01

The Debian Package Tracker may help.

If you look up Wireshark for example, you can see this source package creates multiple binary packages such as wireshark-common, wireshark-dev, wireshark-doc, etc.
