It's really hard for any of us to help you unless you give details
of what you did, and what exactly do you aim to achieve.
Which package are you trying to build? Are you trying to make it into
official Debian? What changes did you make?

Please push your source package somewhere for a review

Hmm, this looks like a hello world package. Why don't you follow our
wiki for the same[1], rather than other tutorials on the web?

There are also several wikis for setting up packaging environment et.
al. Do you have those things in place on your system?

Details are necessary. But that being said, this list isn't the best place
for beginner packaging problems. Please use:
https://lists.debian.org/debian-mentors (debian-mentors@lists.debian.org) for these questions
(unless they are ambiguous or directly deal with policy matters or need the attention of several DDs)

Again, details please :-) Please put any follow up mails to
debian-mentors mailing list than here
