I just joined pkg-ruby team, so I'll comment only generic packaging things.
> I'm writing a guide (and learning how to do it at the same time!) on how to package Ruby applications for the Debian package format at http://techbase.kde.org/Development/Tutorials/Deploying_Qt_Ruby_Applications_as_a_Debian_packages_for_Kubuntu and have the following questions
> 1.) I have installed ruby-pkg-tools but have no idea what to do with it. I do not understand this page http://pkg-ruby-extras.alioth.debian.org/ruby-pkg-tools/cdbs.html
> Any pointers?
> 3.) Also, is /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/ the correct location for ruby library files belonging to an application to live in?
> Perhaps I should be using some kind of symlink trickery. In any case, any help greatly appreciated.
Definitely not. No package is allowed to put anything into /usr/local
(that applies for any package, not just ruby).
