Alright, that howto was great.  Now that I can see the process
end-to-end, I can go back and read about what all those flags were. :P

So I've made 3 packages and have uploaded them to the server[1].  They
checked out with lintian, but is there anything else I should do to
make sure they're good to go?

Thanks so much,
