Need help building .debs for applet
I've written a wireless configuration applet (http://gtkwifi.sf.net) and would like to get it deb-packaged to make it easier to install. It's written in Python, and it provides a GTK/GNOME interface to configure wireless network connections: displaying a list of available networks, storing WEP keys, etc.
Currently, the applet uses a Python-based install script. I've read some HOWTOs on Debian packaging, but they seem to be Debian-specific and compiled-language-specific. I don't have a makefile, and I'm intending to distribute for Ubuntu.
If anyone could help out, it would be greatly appreciated. I'd love to see my app become a part of the stock Ubuntu distro - I believe that it could be a boon for usability.

Google for the debian new maintainers guide.
Look on the wiki for the MOTU (masters of the universe) and how to contribute.
Also, there is a nice page about making packages without debhelper (by hand) from debian women. You can google for that. It is a good read.
