Re: [RFC] Binary packages containing the source

* Goswin von Brederlow <goswin-v-b@web.de>, 2010-09-22, 11:39:
apt-get install linux-2.6:src

where "src" is just another architecture (at least for the user

apt-get install foo:src

should then install the source and also all Build-Depends(-Indep) of the
source. Besides packages Build-Depending on source packages this is also
verry usefull for working on sources. The foo:src package will be marked
manual while all Build-Depends remain automatic. When one is done
working with a source one can purge foo:src and all the Build-Depends
can be autoremoved if nothing else needs them.

For the latter problem, you may find sourcedeps.debian.net useful:
