Dear Mauricio, thanks for the tip.

I had to do the following to make it work:


bzr add  debian/source/format

I added:

bzr add debian/compat

The compat file hold only one line with: 10, as in: echo "10" >compat

Without this, it fails to compile, but with this line added, all seems well.

I get my .deb package with all the files in good place. In my case I don't need 
a .configure since there is only a Makefile and that is enough for my project. 
I also get the source packages signed.
I didn't try to push them to launchpad though, and will try that when I have a 
real fix to package (which is hopefully soon!)

I will mark it "fixed for me" when I'll have done that launchpad publication, 
but so far it seems all good!

That being said, and since apparently bzr dropped support for making debian 
packages, wouldn't it be worth it to rewrite completely this "Packaging guide" 
with newer tooling (like git?)

After all, the task of compiling a simple hello.c, be it with the help
of a Makefile, is quite basic!
