I'm not looking for the source code for a particular program.
I'm looking for the source code of APT's configuration of a particular program.
When trying to search for this on the web, I get way too many hits about maintaining my system, how to get a package's sources, or how to configure my package manager. None of these are things I want. So I'm here.
I want the source repository of the
.deb file that is used to install programs.
Unless I'm misunderstanding, Ubuntu maintains these installer files, probably with input from specific packages.
I'm trying to install and setup VirtualBox.
The package that is installed when I run
sudo apt install virtualbox doesn't do 100% of what I expect it to do. Specifically, I think some of the "official" init scripts, notably
vboxautostart-service.sh, are not being installed and I'm trying to get to the bottom of it.
I have no problem getting the sources of VirtualBox.
I can see
vboxautostart-service.sh in the official sources under a "linux" folder.
I see that Apt gets the package from http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu (or similar).
Where can I see which steps Ubuntu's package maintainers have decided are needed to install and setup VirtualBox?
Following up, if I think I've found a bug, where can I go to discuss this with the people that can do something about it? I haven't found a git repo, for instance.
