[Pkg-opennebula-devel] Questions about merging with Ubuntu

I'm trying to create a fix to make the package work with Ubuntu:

I have a few questions, which I believe are beginner's questions.

1) What is the correct way to try this out? I mean, following Debian's
policy. I've checked out the git repo, and there are three branches:

After reading this article: http://wiki.debian.org/PackagingWithGit
I'm working directly on top of the master branch. Is that correct?
After modifying the debian dir, if it works, I should send the git
patch, correct?

2) When I run "debuild" it complains because
opennebula_2.0.1.orig.tar.gz doesn't exist in the parent directory.
I've downloaded the source code and renamed it, but I don't know if
that's what I'm supposed to do. maybe there's a script which generates
the source code?

3) I haven't reached the same error the Ubuntu guys report. In my case
if I change the version of javahelper (applying the attached patch) it
works perfectly. I'm trying it in an Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit, are they
trying it in another release? Maybe it would be best if I ask someone
at Ubuntu?
