One thing that hasn't been mentioned yet, these are packages containing
binaries, not source. If you want to download the source, 'apt-get
source packagename' (assuming you have your deb-src lines properly set
up) will download the original source tarball, debian diffs, and a
checksum file; unpack the tarball into a subdirectory of the current
directory; and apply the patch.
