Bug Description

dgetlp is the only tool that works on the archive queue pages such as:

Please put it back.

Maybe ubuntu-archive-tools would be a better home for it then?
It's very hacky and doesn't look like it supports 3.0 (quit)'s source formats

I'd be surprised if I never pulled down a v3.0 format package with it, so I
suspect it does. It's been there for a very long time and was only removed on
the premise it was no longer needed. This isn't true and I'd appreciate it if
someone would just put it back where it was rather than engage in a long
bikeshed discussion about where it should best reside.

It doesn't handle any compression other than gz, and I doubt it handles multi-orig-tarball packages.

I'll put it back until it's no longer needed for +queue.

  [ Stefano Rivera ]
  * syncpackage, backportpackage, sponsor-patch: Use -nc when building source
    packages. Avoids needing build-deps on the build machine.
  * sponsor-patch:
    - Determine the task from the UDD branch.
    - Support syncs of new packages.
    - Support syncs from a non-default series (LP: #931644)
    - Check for dependencies that the package doesn't Depend on. Recommend
      dput, lintian, patch, quilt. (LP: #846385)
  * Re-add dgetlp. Still needed for downloading source packages from +queue.
    (LP: #919805)
  * pbuilder-dist:
    - Export DISTRIBUTION and ARCHITECTURE as well as DIST and ARCH. Thanks
      Alessio Treglia. (Closes: #659060, LP: #423609)
    - Pass DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS through (LP: #685786)
  * reverse-depends: Now that Debian is supported server-side:
    - Convert Debian release aliases to codenames.
    - Default to the devel release of the vendor distribution.
    - Provide transitional reverse-build-depends wrapper to help users
      discover reverse-depends. (LP: #910420)
  * backportpackage: Map Debian release aliases to codenames (LP: #918231)

  [ Evan Broder]
  * sponsor-patch, requestsync, syncpackage: Add a config variable for -k
