First thing you should do is get an account at alioth.debian.org, it is
our Sourceforge-like site.  As a non-DD, you will get a -guest account.
Let me know your account name, and I will add you to the alioth project.

Then you import your packaging either in subversion (which is what we
mostly use) or git (which some packages are maintained in).  For
subversion, we only keep the debian/ directory in the repository.  Any
changes to the upstream source should be done via patches, these
preferably quilt patches using the "3.0 (quilt)" source format.

You should probably also subscribe to this mailing list (see
https://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/debichem-devel) and if
you are using IRC, there is a channel #debichem on irc.freenode.net.

Ok, no problem.  We will review your package once you have finished
(drop us a line on debichem-devel), and then upload.

Of course, feel free to ask any questions.
