A good starting point is


If you are looking for working examples you could use perhaps my
wordnet package (apt-get source wordnet), which builds a architecture
dependend bin and dev package as well a architecture independend
data (=base) and doc package.  It's a little bit heavy (you have to
download a big file which I would not do via slow connection) but
could give a glimpse how to split the package.  (Feel free to ask
just for the debian/* files in case of slow connection.)  My package
tipptrainer would work as well as example.

But there might be some others.

Kind regards and thanks for caring about xconq
