Hello! I'm reading the Policy Manual so I can correct any errors I have in my control file before sending my program to Lucas Wall, that had accepted to be my sponsor. Reading this URL: http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-controlfields.html ...I see that the source package control file must be in "debian/control", and the binary control file must be in "DEBIAN/control"...am I right? they are different directories?

The binary control file is built from your source control file when you compile your source package into a binary package.
Check the directory <srctopdir>/debian/<pkgname>/DEBIAN (<pkgname> may be tmp, or something else, if you are building a multi-binary package) after you build your package (and before you do a clean). Or extract the control.tar.gz file from the deb file using ar.
