I rewrite the page with a first version of instruction for do it.

Please... give me any kind of suggestion, correction, question, etc.

With your instructions I was able to build a package. Great, thanks!

I still have these problems:

- package name must be lowercase, at least at some places. Does anybody know
the exact rules?

That's documented in the Debian Policy Manual:


5.6.7 Package

The name of the binary package.

Package names must consist only of lower case letters (a-z), digits (0-9),
plus (+) and minus (-) signs, and periods (.). They must be at least two
characters long and must start with an alphanumeric character.


With best regards,

Carsten Hoeger
