Is there anything else that Debian could do to make it easier for

I could have thought a bit more about that, and agreed that while the
procedures are laid out, and can eventually be discovered from various
web pages, it's not so clear and obvious. (I still think that the
package standards themselves are OK though.)
Perhaps there is some scope for Debian to make things easier for
potential new contributors, and in particular, maybe a page with
specific advice for derivative developers would be welcome.
