Ah, there is a skeleton. Otherwise I’d probably just have
used one of mine… but I understand the faster-better thing.

I just “cowbuilder --debbuildopts -b --build foo.dsc”’d them
on Lenny, and they work for me so far (after using the bpo
version of mediawiki-extensions due to #499885).

OK, sure. Like I said, I’m not able to fully commit myself,
but neither am I going to just disappear.

Ah, interesting. Do you put all extensions into one (source)
package, or do you split them?

Since I’m sticking with stock Debian packages as much as
possible, split source packages would be better because one
can backport them individually (there’s no way we’re going
to use anything other than Lenny for ages).
