Read the packaging manual, it's part of dpkg and installed in
/usr/doc/dpkg/packaging.html/, with most Debian installation browsable

While you are at it, install and read the policy manual too.

Note that this is *important stuff*. You really should have read this
already if you are maintaining Debian packages.
