Also, it doesn't seem to change the outcome. The first part of the guide (Chapter 2. First steps)  explains a little better what different parts constitute a source package, and therefore a source directory. Another good resource is the Debian handbook; specifically it's chapter 5.3 "Structure of a Source Package" . In short, you need to: - extract the upstream tarball - extract the Debian changes on top of the directory containing your upstream extracted source code (usually a .debian.tar.*). - apply the patches All this is doable by hand, but really, you should rely on Debian's tools: $ apt-get source coreutils … will download and extract the coreutils source package from the Debian repositories. And by extract, I mean that it will do nothing more than the 3 steps above.
