I take you you don't maintain you own packages?
First you have to increment the debian version number by 0.1 (for NMUs,
see Debian policy), eg. 1:22.2-3 would become 1:22.2-3.1.
To do this, use something like "dch -i 'changelog message'", and then
edit the version number in debian/changelog by hand (dch can be found in
the devscripts package.
Then run dpkg-buildpackage to build everything, and upload the result
using debrelease/dupload/whatever to Debian.
Alternatively, if you get really stuck, send me the one line change, and
I will do the NMU, if not today, tomorrow, GMT+10 timezone (note: as I
use grub extensively I will not be able to test anything).
