This talk is intended for complete beginners. Even those unfamiliar to debian can attend it. This talk will emphasize what it means to package, why packaging is an important contribution and demonstrate the process of packaging using beginner friendly examples. I will first setup a debian sid environment for packaging and then demonstrate packaging examples in that environment. It can act as a video document for beginners to start learning debian packaging. The talk will also point to material on debian packaging for further reading and how to get involved with the community for contributing to packaging work.
