Install dpkg-dev, fakeroot and dupload.
Make sure your name in the changelog matches your PGP key. Use
`dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot' from the package directory to create
the package and everything else you need automatically.
The easiest way to upload is to set up ssh so that you can `ssh
master.debian.org' and get in without a password. Make sure
/etc/dupload.conf is set up. Check that /etc/dupload.conf is set up
properly. Use `dupload --to master xinetd2.2.1-4_i386.changes' to do
the upload and email announcement.

Some of it is in /usr/doc/dpkg/, some in
/usr/doc/developers-reference/, and some in other places. I think
there might be some in /usr/doc/debian-policy/.
