Yes, it is the "former" case - I want my package to be installable in,
say, Ubuntu, by sudo apt-get install mypackage.

I'm refering to these two applications:
http://hackage.haskell.org/package/timeplot and

I'd happily do the package maintenance myself if that could speed up
the process, but I just need to know what to do :)

Thanks, I'll look at these.
