Initiating the Debian Package
The first task is to set up the information required for the Debian
packaging system. Extract the distribution:
$ cd ../../debian/wajig
$ tar zxvf wajig-2.0.20.tar.gz
This will create the wajig-2.0.20 subdirectory.
Now run dh_make to set things up for Debian:
You will be asked what kind of package to create and since wajig is a
single binary package we choose s.
This has now created a debian subdirectory and copy of the
original distribution in ../wajig-2.0.20.orig.tar.gz.
Note that you should only ever run dh_make once to
create a Debian package.
Now edit the files in the debian subdirectory to tell Debian
the appropriate information about the package.
