You are correct that these lines may be confusing, since there is a lot
of abstraction and implicit behaviour done by those simple and terse

Using debhelper's version 7 is a good thing for just getting the
packaging working when you know about some of the implementation details
(and, here, the implementation details matter).

I would suggest that you take a notice on Sune Vuorela's e-mail:

You may want to use the debhelper-version-5-style debian/rules file, so
that you can see it better what is happening and which file goes where.

Hope this helps,
