This might help:


and this:


(both Debian rather than Ubuntu, but should mostly apply, and any
differences you find might help if you want to push your work upstream

Oh, and, CDBS is evil -- don't touch it

Other things to look out for pbuilder and cowbuilder, and
git-buildpackage (or perhaps bzr-builddeb if you've not yet noticed
that bzr is dead ;-) )
