After you have successfully build your package with dpkg-buildpackage and made sure all dependencies are added to debian/control, it is time to send an ITP (intent to package).

Send the email to: submit@bugs.debian.org

The subject line is supposed to have got the following syntax:

ITP: ruby-devise --  A gem that offers flexible authentication solution for Rails with Warden

which means you start with ITP and a colon (ITP:) add one space, then the name of your package (ruby-devise) one space, two hyphens and another space ( -- ) and finally the short description.

The content should look similar to this:

package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Markus Tornow <tornow@riseup.net>

*Package Name : devise
 Version : 2.1.2
 Upstream Author : José Valim, Carlos Antônio
*URL :  https://github.com/plataformatec/devise
*License : Expat
*Description :  Flexible authentication solution for Rails with Warden

I am packaging devise as it is a dependency of devise_invitable
(#691181)  which is a dependency of diaspora (#597093)

You will find the according info in the files you already edited (changelog, copyright and control). Once you get the confirmation for you ITP you can add the bug-number to debian/changelog:

* Initial release (Closes: #692057 )

and get rid of the according lintian error.

block by

Detailed info can be found here:

If your package can't be installed because one of it's dependencies is not installable, but already set to ITP.

Send an email to: control@bugs.debian.org

Give the info in the subject line. Tell which package blocks your package:

devise (691525 ) blocks devise_invitable (691181)

In the body use this syntax (ITP-number block by ITP-number)

block 691181 by 691525

add additional info

Once you added your package as a git repo to * gitorious debian-diaspora you should add the info about the git-repository to the bug.

Send an email to: your_bug_number@bugs.debian.org

Make the subject line look like this:

Re: ITP: ruby-devise --  A gem that offers flexible authentication solution for Rails with Warden

(add an Re: before your original subject line).

And give the info where your git repository is to be found. For example:

The git-repository is to be found here: 
https://gitorious.org/debian-diaspora/ruby-devise
