Also, I have been reading Debian documentation but there is still a

correct in assuming that it is later automatically built into a deb file
and pushed to the Debian unstable repository? Or do I need to somehow
indicate that the package is ready for public consumption?
If you set the distribution to unstable in debian/changelog (currently
it says UNRELEASED), the package will show up in the Ready For Upload
section on the package entropy tracker. It will usually be
reviewed by a Debian Developer after a short while and either be
uploaded to the archive or get a comment added to the changelog and
the distribution changed back to UNRELEASED.
A new package such as yours will even after an upload not directly
show up in the archive, but has to be reviewed by the ftp-team as
well. Until this happens it will show up on the NEW queue.
Great info. Thanks Ansgar!
