Start here: <http://www.debian.org/devel/>

Especially at <http://www.debian.org/doc/maint-guide/>

Then, for all the details, there is 
<http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/>, and for more on how .deb files 
are actually contributed, <http://www.debian.org/doc/developers-reference/> 
and <http://people.debian.org/~mpalmer/debian-mentors_FAQ.html>

The autobook is a good place to start, even though it's somewhat outdated 
IIRC. <http://sources.redhat.com/autobook/>

I hope this gives you a good start.
