Ubuntu - building from deb source packages

I am checking into porting apache-ssl-certificate from apache2-common to apache2.2-common for bug # 77675:
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apache2/+bug/77675

I can't seem to find a nice way to download the source files from the web, so downloaded the .dsc, .diff.gz, and the tar.gz files for apache2 (edgy). You then run:

dpkg-source -x apache2_2.0.55-4ubuntu4.dsc

to apply the diff, and generate the debian directory.

UPDATE: I have submitted the files and a diff.gz, plus instructions on how to apply them at:
