To install the configuration file, I append to what I written (in the
"install" section yet:

       cp minimalist.conf-sample debian/minimalist/etc/minimalist.conf
I had to append 'etc' into the 'dirs' file.
Is it right ?

Yes.  This makes it a "configuration file".  If you want it to be a
conffile (which I suspect you do), you should also list it in

You don't need to add it to debian/conffiles if you use debhelper compatibility level 3 or higher[1] (current dh_make sets comp level to 4). All files in etc/ are automatically flagged as conffiles by dh_installdeb.
