Isn't this documented on the New Maintainer's Guide? I did write
an article, quite some time ago related to source building, a written both
in English and in Spanish, I'm afraid it seems only the Spanish version
was published (in www.openresources.com). However, I'm setting it up in
http://www.dat.etsit.upm.es/~jfs/debian/doc/making-packages (en/ for the
english version and es/ for the Spanish one).
If others feel it's intersting I will translated it from LaTeX to
debiandoc (there is a version of the spanish version in linuxdoc SGML) and
publish it in the DDP (although I think debiandoc does not support inline
images). It might also need some update regarding the new tools in Debian
that appeared after the article was published.
