There's a couple of scripts you'll want from the Maintainers Guide, but
other than that I'd recommend Lucas Nussbaum's Packaging Tutorial instead:

https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/packaging-tutorial/packaging-tutorial.pdf

You can also get this via installing the 'packaging-tutorial' package.

The issue with the Debian Maintainer's Guide (which is usually what most DDs
recommend as well) is that the documentation is big, and also points to the
Debian Policy Manual, the Filesystem Hirearchy Standard, and another
document on using Debconf -- hundreds of pages of reading which there's no
associated memory or understanding until you actually try /doing/ some of
the packaging. I tried to start by reading the Maintainer's Guide. I kept
getting bored and putting it down. A year later I picked up the Packaging
Tutorial and I was able to get somewhere. That's why the Packaging Tutorial
is a better first start -- because it'll help letting you /do/ things first
-- /then/ reading the Maintainer's Guide will make more sense.

Paul: feel free to contact me offlist, because I guarantee you'll have
further questions, because the docs don't tell you everything.
