Re: I'll do "deliver" if...
The docs that are to be found on ftp.debian.org explain
things in a 'reference manual' kind of way... maybe I'm
slow but it did take me a while to get going.
The idea generally is to create a makefile called "debian.rules"
in the top directory of your source tree. This has a number of
targets: binary and clean being the most important.
The binary target:
1. makes the binaries.
2. creates a 'virtual root directory', usually called debian-tmp.
3. installs binaries and config files under that
4. calls dpkg to make that virtual directory into a debian package.
The clean target undoes all of that.
There is a sample debian rules file which needs some tuning, and which
also generates the source "pkcg.tar.gz" and diff "pckg.diff.gz" files
for you. It expects there to be a directory ../pckg-ver-rev.orig
Hope this helps,
