I see no problem with adding it to the Debian-Hebrew repository. It
should be straightforward.

I wouldn't upload it to Debian until it stabilizes some more.

If, however, you want to be able to do quick releases with a Debian
package during early development, it would be best if you continued your
packaging on your own. You can definitely create and maintain the debian
directory in your repository and when the program stabilizes you can
remove that and we'll import it to the debian-hebrew repository for team
maintenance and Debian inclusion.
