Re: intend-to-implement: script to obtain Debian Source


My plan is to have a source-repository of every single Debian package.
I consider it to be interesting in several ways including that of avoiding
symbol conflicts with shared library package, and finding out 
what might be a scalable way to maintain such a large chunk of source code.

unpacked/patched will not be a good name to choose, since they might 
already exist in debian/rules as targets.

It would be nice to have a 'policy-reserved' name for debian/rule targets 
that cannot be used unless policy allows to which is guaranteed not to be 
used anywhere else.

I've extracted every single package using the following kind of snippet:

 bzgrep ^Package: Sources.bz2 | sed 's/Package: //'  | xargs -n1 apt-get source

and started doing some searching on what target can be used for 
extracting the tarball and applying patches; following is a list that
I came up after a few hours of searching:
