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
