I think debian-mentors@ would be more approriate.

You don't want that.  You are looking for dh_gencontrol(1):

     dh_gencontrol is a debhelper program that is responsible for
     generating control files, and installing them into the DEBIAN
     directory with the proper permissions.

Note that it won't be enough; you should really look into existing
packages to see how it is done.
