  rewrite pull-[lp|debian|uca]-source

Status in ubuntu-dev-tools package in Ubuntu:
Status in ubuntu-dev-tools package in Debian:

Bug description:
  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,
  and ddebs.

  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
  build failures.

  Original description:

  Errors like the following are happening because Debian's DDE [1] is
  dead [2]:

  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?
