Debian's standards for packages are quite extensive (see debian policy: https://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ ). As annoying as debhelper can be, it exists for a reason. Unfortunately you are probably not going to be able to generate a fully policy-compliant package from a script. There would be no need for package maintainers if you could! In terms of improving your package, I would look at lintian and fix up the issues it reports, then bring the package to debian mentors and see what comments they may have Thanks, Jacob
