Updating a debian package

I followed this HOWTO to create a debian package update. With a debian watch file it is quite easy to grab a new upstream version. To run the 'debuild' step you will need all the build dependencies installed - these are listed in the debian/control file in the package directory.
sudo apt-get build-dep package
will install all the build dependencies for a given package.
