In the past I used Gentoo to develop software and create packages. I
used Debian and Ubuntu only as from the users point of view. I've never
created any packages for Ubuntu. Now I tried it the first time for a
software where I'm the linux maintainer and developer:

The Gentoo package creation isn't a problem. Currently there's not yet a
source package released. So I work with the CVS checkout. I followed
these docs:

The deb files are a little small. If I look into the deb, only the docs are
