There are no skeletons, because those scripts are used for many purposes.
Many packages don't need them at all and many packages have differing
requirements on what a postinst should do. So, really, all you can do is to
bake your own and go shopping for reusable parts from others' scripts.
Try http://www.debian.org/~srivasta/rules/ . You can also go and read the
source to other packages that have approximately what you want.
