1. don't commit any .deb files or other packaging files to Git. Only 
debian/ (and possibly upstream files).

2. look at Debian blends and the blends framework for creating meta 
packages. In fact, you simply need to add some lines to the 
debian-edu.tasks file in src:package debian-edu.

Wolfgang Schweer wrote about all that in a previous mail, please 
review his writings from some weeks ago. It was all in there.

The vagrant files will not be needed. We use scripts from the 
blends-dev package to create the debian/control file and normal 
dpkg-buildpackage to create the .deb files.

Please re-read the previous mails.

@Wolfgang: can you provide more input if needed? Thanks!
