For me creating deb packages is easy, it's almost automatic work (use
dh-make-perl, fix some control files). Problem is when I want to put
them into
main debian repository: it means fill Intend To Package bug, wait for
confirmation, upload to ftp-master, wait for adding to official queue
etc. When I have one package I am doing this once. When I have 8
packages (like Session, Auth & Stuffs) I have to do this 8 times
