Excellent info, thanks!  I've succeeded in creating (and installing) my
first test package.

I was reading the docs and it describes how to upload the i386 package...
not mentioning the other files.  If I created my package this way, does it
somehow adversely affect the package to be uploaded?

I can't see that it does, just wanted to make sure.
