"apt source" doesn't work out of the box
Open, LowPublic


The /etc/apt/sources.list file has no "deb-src" entries after the OS installation, so "apt source" can't find package sources.

The following lines should be added to the sources.list:

deb-src amber main
deb-src amber-security main
deb-src amber-updates main

I think that this might be an "okay" situation as it is. The point is that adding deb-src repos is more of a power user thing, no?

GNU+Linux is the highly hackable thing by its nature. The access to the corresponding sources is an expected behavior.

I think it's easier to tweak the distro than to even discuss this ;-D
