Future of debian packaging

Hello,

Michael, who was doing most of the debian packaging work, unfortunately left the project and while there is some information about how to update an existing package there is no documentation on how to create new packages:

I am not familiar with debian packaging at all and I need to get two new dependencies into our repos to finish Redfish feature. While I was able to create the package on my debian system using gem2deb tool and build it, I am not able to get the CI passing using trial and error commits. I guess I am stuck:

Any ideas how to proceed? What is our plan in this regard? Can we reach out to the community to find volunteers with debian packaging expertise?
