Very good! I like your wiki page, that's the level of details I wanted.

That sounds like a reasonable plan.

As mentioned on IRC, this package is already in the archive as

I'd like to know more about those dependencies. What are they for? Do we
need them to package this lib in Debian?

I also think it would be a better idea for you to start working on
updating existing packages before packaging new ones. As such, I propose
you have a look at libtools-cli-clojure (and maybe libdata-xml-clojure
if we can indeed update it without having to update leiningen).

Updating them will give you valuable experience. Once that's done, you
can start working on leaf packages.

So to recap:

1. Investigate com.cognitec.aws:* packages
2. Update packages in the archive that need to be updated
3. Package leaf packages
4. Package libtools-deps-alpha-clojure
