need apt-get sources to use in slackware - scratchbox

ok this sounds somewhat stupid and off topic...
however i intentionally am posting in the slackware subforum.

i can't seem to find anywhere the sources of the debian distribution. i want to grab the source package of apt-get..
i need to install it in scratchbox - an arm emulator/toolkit, which i have compiled/installed under slackware. slapt-get won't do the trick here.. it must be apt-get and i am unable to find the apt-get source anywhere! of course i haven't used Debian ever to know some more about it, but still, its frustrating..
anyone with a link to open my eyes ?
thank you in advance

Downloading Debian

Could try downloading debian and mounting the .iso on the hard drive. Or could go to the debian site and look at the repositories.
