First of all I would work with Debian package, so that you won’t
have multiple packages between Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, etc.
Also, I would just pick existing source package from
https://packages.debian.org/sid/bibletime and fix it.
Also, prior to your work, it would be probably good idea just to
file a bug for whatever issues you see with the current package
(http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting). By that the work on the
Debian package won’t be split into multiple half-done efforts.
And yes, there is 'Packaging for Dummies' on
Also, I think for the Debian packaging issues you could find
more help in a Debian mailing list (see
P.S.: Note, that I haven’t been a maintainer of any Debian
package for the last nine years (cowardly defected to the
distros of my employer), so please don’t ask me any specific
Debian related questions.
