Re: Idiot's Guide to Debian Packaging

Idiot suited me fine. It describes beautifully my state of
ignorance. Still, it may offend some, even tho' it also 
tickles my admittedly black sense of humor.
(I have liked unusual combinations of way signs, like:
  Nursing School / Cemetery  or  Cemetery / Smokery.)

I would like also see a commented list of tools/packages
usable in making a package. I'm not quite at home with
the many partially overlapping tools. What I'd like to 
know is if there are dependencies or other interactions
in the tools.

The expressed intent was to do it well (in comparison with previous 
efforts), I'm sure there is no trouble in including it in official 
docs when it's ready.
