[Pkg-lxde-maintainers] Crash Course in LXDE packaging

hi peeps
I was thinking about diving into the packaging world to be able to lend a 
hand to the Debian side of things.

As far as I can remmeber and workout from PTS and such you use git for 
storing the package and I have seen parts of the process but really don't 
know much about it.

I know git in and out since I maintain our build environment at work, I 
"just" need the crash course in how to do importing of upstream git and 
make it produce the package in the other end of things.

When it comes to basic debs I have some knowledge but with huge gaps.

What's the best straight up way of doing things?
I do build the upstream code already so the tool chain is complete from 
that perspective.

Maybe a recorded session on one of the component would be sufficient and I 
can ask the questions from there?
Any takers?
