i need some help here, because i have no clue about packaging debs... :o(

i understand that you would like me to do this:

* put the debian/ dir into the xubuntu dir in svn, as:

*change the Makefile so that this gets copied to:

-> deb can be created from this

the workflow for working on documentation would then be:

* edit files in:

*run Makefile

*make the deb

*install deb

* check changes in:

is this right at all?

my next question is: where do i get the debian/ dir? do i extract it 
from the current xubuntu-docs.deb or what?

i still have lots to learn, it seems :o)
