your question could refer to two things: You want your software packaged
and distributed by Debian; and you want to provide Debian packages of
your software on your project’s homepage.

In the former case, you should tell us what software it is and kindly
ask, and we (the Debian Haskell Group) will probably maintain the
package for you.

In the latter case, you might want to look at
and some of the packaging for Debian packages on
http://darcs.debian.org/pkg-haskell/ and are welcome to ask on this list
if you need further help.
