have a look at www.debian.org - read the pages behind the link 
`Developers Corner`. Read at least the FHS, the debian policy, the 
packaging guide, the maint-guide (maintainer-guide).

Then have a look at nm.debian.org (that's the new-maintainer side) if you
are interested in becoming a debian maintainer. Actually it seems so for
me that you would like to that. 

kind regards,
