	If I steal hours from somewhere else, I may be able to
	contribute ~25 hours/year to the project.  Let me ask
	one question about the Debian packaging system.   Is
	there an easy (push-button|one command-line) way of
	fetching back the _source_ for a given suite.  In the
	BSD world, you just cd /usr/ports/foo/* and type 

	  # make extract

	to retrieve the code.  

	thanks for any light on dpkg, &c.
