In chapter 5. The Debian package management system on page 233:

In the first paragraph of the subsection titled "Obtaining source package" talks about the two types of source packages in the Debian archive: packages requiring modifications prior to their inclusion in Debian, and packages included directly. The text calls the former the class of "native packages" and terms the latter as "normal packages." It should be the other way around.
