No, it is not you that is confused it is me. Upstream/Downstream. Sorry.

address@hidden ~$ apt-get source lilypond

Reading package lists... Done

Building dependency tree       

Reading state information... Done

E: Unable to find a source package for lilypond


(this is not Debian but Linux Mint admittedly) however I can still
apt-get build-dep lilypond. So while I know that Debian != Linux Mint,
they both use apt-get so I would have thought it was the same, but I
don't want to digress.

Does this include 'adding' packages that are not currently in build-dep
control files?

It's a start, thanks.
