'debify' is a little longer, see below. Given a call
./debify foo 1.2-3 1.2-4
it expands the 1.2-4 tarball and copies the 1.2-3/debian over, having done
some parameter checking. I then edit debian/changelog and if needed,
debian/control and fire off the pbuilder.

How come 'your page' (ie for debian-med) lists my packages?
edd at ron:~$ cat src/debian/CRAN/debify
if [ "$#" -lt 3 ]
echo "Usage: $0 file v1 v2"
if [ ! -f $f1 ]
echo "Error: $f1 does not exist"
if [ ! -f $f2 ]
echo "Error: $f2 does not exist"
echo "Expanding new archive $f2"
tar xfz $f2
d=`tar tfz $f2 | head -1 | cut -f1 -d/`
echo "Moving directory $d to $nd: "
mv $d $nd
echo "Syncing $od/debian directory to $nd"
rsync -au "$od/debian" $nd
