Ok, I have just read the web page. It says:
* Creating a Package using Debmake (hopefully this and the following
will be merged)
Note: use of debmake is deprecated. Use debhelper instead. Once
someone writes a debhelper tutorial, it will replace the debmake
info on this page.
Of course, I don't think this is 100% fair.
In the first place, I would consider fundamentally wrong any "new
maintainer's guide" or new maintainer's web page which tells *either* "use
debmake" or "use debhelper".
I hope noone will object if I ask the webmasters to replace that
by the following:
"Note: Many people seem to prefer debhelper over debmake. Once someone
writes a debhelper tutorial, it will replace the debmake info on this
