Status in ubuntu-dev-tools package in Debian:
I've essentially re-written the pull-[lp|debian|uca]-source scripts,
consolidating them all to use a common codebase and extending the
functionality to allow pulling not only source but also debs, udebs,
The updates also allow specifying binary package names, which the
original pull-*-source didn't work with.
This also fixes bug 1700846, where pull-debian-source fails for older
packages where the public key that the DSC was signed with no longer
is in the keyring.
This also allows actually getting ddebs for old packages - unlike
ddebs.ubuntu.com, which only provides ddebs for the latest few package
versions, pull-lp-ddebs will actually pull ddebs for all older package
versions, meaning you can debug a problem without being forced to
upgrade to the latest version of all relevant packages first.
This also fixes various flake8/pylint failures when building in
bionic. The current version (without my patches) no longer builds in
bionic due to updates to flake8 and pylint causing ubuntu-dev-tools
Errors like the following are happening because Debian's DDE  is
logan at logan-VMware:~$ pull-debian-source d-rats
pull-debian-source: Error: Unable to retrieve package information from DDE: http://dde.debian.net/dde/q/udd/dist/d:debian/r:sid/p:d-rats/?t=json (<urlopen error [Errno -2] Name or service not known>)
pull-debian-source: Error: Unable to find d-rats in Debian suite "sid".
Maybe someone would be willing to host/maintain a new instance of DDE?
Or is there another way to programmatically grab the Debian/Ubuntu
source package name from the binary package name?
