I used "deb-make" from the "debmake" package to create it. Everything went
fairly smoothly and the result seemed OK.
Can some expert please clarify which is officially the best way of
Debianizing a package?
In the case of something like zcav deb-make seems best because it's quick and
easy, I don't want to spend more time Debianizing it than I spent writing it!
