The procedure is really quite simple, call dpkg-buildpackage with -B
(builds only architecture dependent packages and no source), and -m"<your
maintainer info>"(e.g. dpkg-buildpackage -B -m"Joel Klecker <firstname.lastname@example.org>"
is what I use).
It is (usually) not necessary to mess with the package at all. Once the
package(s) are built and the changes files signed, you can upload as normal.
