The "source package" for the 'foo' package, version 1.2 debian release
3, consists of three files:

   - 'foo_2.0.orig.tar.gz', the original tarball
   - 'foo_2.0-3.diff.gz', the patch file for the Debian changes
   - 'foo_2.0-3.dsc', the source control file

See the Debian maintainer's guide ('aptitude install maint-guide', or
choose one of the translation packages).
