A thought to consider - when I embarked upon creating debian and ubuntu packages of my own software, I found very little in the way of
guides to assist a developer, the guides are focused on maintaining someone else's software (often already packaged).
It can't hurt to educate developers on how to assemble packages for their own software, just making them aware of what's required will lead
to reduced effort to package and the ones who chose to include the debian build files in the source shift the maintainer effort to quality
control type role (hopefully fed back to the developer to include).
