debian is a control directory which contains all the options for
building a package or packages from the source.
xorg-dev contains some libraries, it is not the source for the server.
Xorg is organized into many packages, with a metapackage that pulls
them in as dependencies. The main xorg server package is
xserver-xorg-core, and running apt-get source xserver-xorg-core will
download those sources.
Also note that you don't have to use sudo to run apt-get source.
