Auto-generate packaging for simpler packages

Registered by James Westby on 2010-10-25

For many projects the packaging required is fairly straightforward, so it should be possible to automate many
of the required steps.

For many developers this will mean that provided they conform to standards the
this step can be done on their behalf, removing this obstacle to distributing their code on
Ubuntu.
