I dont consider myself to be a good packager, as I was just flying by the
seat of my pants during the recent attempts.

Well, I intent to merge the two documents about deb-make (Debian
New maintainer HOWTO and Making a Debian Package), and rewrite
parts that explicitly depend on deb-make, and use dh_make instead.
I am a new maintainer, but I'll give my best. I contacted authors of
the documents, and they agree.

I'll post the URL (since it's going to be HTML-only for version 0.1)
as soon as I finish it all.
