It is standard procedure to send an intent to package with this subject
line to debian-devel and the WNPP when you indend to start work on
a debian package.

I take it by the way you ask that your not already a debian developer?
While you CAN make deb packages not being a developer...you can't
upload them to debian and have them become part of the system.

DO you yourself plan on becoming a developer (if I misread this and you are
already I apologize) or are you just saying you would like to see it packaged?

If you plan on being the maintainer and a developer and maintaining this 
package then you wont "send them to debian" you would have the ability
to upload packages into "incomming" directly so they will go into
the distribution.

If not then just a pointer to a URL where we can get more info is enough :)
As a volunteer organization, anyone interested enough will take it from
there :)

> Libraries needed only for building the package are relevant?

yes AFAIK one requirement is that every package must exist that is needed to
build any other package.

Does all thi smake sense? if you have any questions feel free to ask.
