This should interest you:
The -dbg packages continue to be usable on Dapper. The new method and the
packages are for Edgy, and not for Dapper. The dbgsym packages will be
available but probably not installed out of the box. In due course of time,
these will be used to enable the user to submit better bug reports. The
announcement I linked to above, and the links in the announcements,
including the specifications that are related might be able to explain
things better than me.

thanks for the patience :)

Not at all  :)

P.S.: Somebody correct me if I am wrong :)
