Would it be suitable to put it in the New Maintainer's guide? I have 
been working through the guide off and on for a while. So far I have 
found it quite useful. I think it even recomends ways to double check 
for existing packages, which is why I can't find anything to ITP. :-)  
Since new wannabe maintainers (like me) who like to do things right the 
first time will read the guide, it seems the right place for it. I think 
it would be suitable to put it in Section 3 - Modifying the Source.

          When choice matters, choose Debian.
