Hi all
I am new to Ubuntu, I really interested in relationship between Ubuntu and Debian in a package level. I want to know how .deb packages from Debian as upstream, going in to Ubuntu repository. In other words is there exist some automatic tools to connecting to Debian package repository and download them in Ubuntu repository?
I really need a tool to connect to Debian repository and download the latest release of the .deb package.
Also I think the input of package in Ubuntu is from two point:

From upstream(Debian)
From community: Ubuntu developers and contributors

I need to know how and by which tools Ubuntu can manage packages comes from these two channels?
Thanks in Advance.
