  I think that there is a bug.  Although the glibc source package resides in
a logical location in the archive, the standard methods of finding source
packages don't work: it isn't locatable by apt-get source and
packages.debian.org claims the sources are missing.  There's obviously a reason
that the package is in source/libs rather than source/base but everything
shouldn't break when I try to look for it.


  You will soon forget this.
