Yeah, a tutorial from someone who has successfully built Debian packages
in the buildservice would be greatly appreciated. Especially if written
for those of us who are basically clueless about Debian packaging.

On a somewhat related note, the version of Ubuntu in the buildservice is
pretty old. The 6.10 (Edgy) release is newer than the 6.06 LTS (Dapper)
release currently in the buildservice, and the 7.04 (Feisty) release is
due out next month. It would be helpful to have those in the build
service as well.
