Hi Damien,

you're right, I've CC'd the list.

I'm having trouble understanding the procedure of package creation and
testing. I've read bit's and pieces about the procedure, but I'm not sure
about many things, namely:

1 - I clone the official git repo:
pkg-opennebula-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org . I cd into the directory, try
to do debuild and it fails since it doesn't find the tar.gz. Which one
should I use? Is there a way to recreate it on the fly, or should I
download the upstream tar.gz ? What name should it have? etc... I guess
that once I do the most basic debuild without changing everything, I'll
have a better understanding of the technique.
2 - What params should I use to create the pbuilder environment?

What I did before, is, so as to speak, the reverse way: I download the
tar.gz, extract it, place the debian dir inside of it, and create the
packages with "debuild".

Thanks for your help Damien.
