Does anyone know where to look for kernel-source repositories ?

root@ubuntu:/home/sl # more /etc/apt/sources.list
## Uncomment the following two lines to fetch updated software from the network
deb http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hoary main restricted universe
deb-src http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hoary main restricted universe

#deb-src http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hoary universe
#deb http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hoary universe

deb http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hoary multiverse
deb-src http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hoary multiverse

#deb http://de.security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hoary-security main restricted
#deb-src http://de.security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hoary-security main restricted

deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ unstable main

and results of apt-cache search kernel-source

do an `apt-cache search linux-source`. This results in a linux-source-2.6.9, linux-source-2.6.10 and linux-source-2.6.11 for me.

34/kvidell: apt-cache search kernel-source | grep 2.6.10
kernel-patch-debian-2.6.10 - Debian patches to Linux 2.6.10
kernel-source-2.6.10 - Linux kernel source for version 2.6.10 with Debian patches
kernel-tree-2.6.10 - Linux kernel source tree for building Debian kernel images
Mine works.
Is that because I'm on Breezy though? *Has yet to find all the differences*
