That's easy, just type: "apt-get source glibc".  It gets the original source, Debian
patch, signed file from the maintainer with both md5sums (".dsc"), and unpacks and
patches the source.

If you want it to automatically build, just add "-b" or "--compile" after apt-get,
though you'll have to fakeroot if you're building as a normal user.

All of the new packages have been put in debian/pool(/main/g/glibc).  Some made it
into woody/testing before the pool, but you'll notice there's nothing in sid/unstable,
all of the Packages listings are either in the dists/woody, dists/potato or pool

Surf around a bit, look at Contents.gz and Packages(.gz) files, what you find may
impress you.  Isn't Debian cool? :-)
