Can't be too hard as there are 15,000 existing ones :) Seriously, that is a
question for the debian-mentors list, and you probably get more help from
Google. Eg I just tried the not so well formed query 'how to debianize a
program' which got 22,800 hits. 'how to create debian package' get 2,330,300
including two book references and several HOWTOs.
Libraries are harder. Start with something small. And do consider the
debian-users and debian-mentors lists as there are way more people
listening. Debian-science isn't bad for science topics, but is unrelated to
Hope this helps, Dirk
