According to [1] the source code is available from zipped tarballs
stored at sourceforge.net. geotools-13.2-project.zip contains the source
files but be careful there are also embedded jar files. [2] Your other
alternative is to download and checkout the sources directly from git
which is explained at [1]. You can follow the tips at [3] to create a
useful get-orig-source target for Debian, if you package directly from git.

In general I would use the provided source tarball from upstream. If you
are unsure, better talk to upstream. The source tarball contains a
pom.xml file. If you run mh_make from maven-debian-helper in the root
directory, you can create the initial Debian packaging for geotools. The
rest is to figure out which libraries are already in Debian or need
