Everything needed to create debian packages and all existing documentation
on the package system is packaged and in the archive:

apt-get install task-debian-devel maint-guide debian-guide debian-policy \
doc-debian packaging-manual

man dpkg

man dselect

man apt

more /usr/share/doc/*

If you want to really dig in, install the sources and read them.

Everything you need to create it is available from the archive.
