everything in the "Packaging" section on that page is useful.

in particular:

the debian policy manual. answers all those "what is the Debian Way
(and why)?" questions. even though the title includes "policy", you
really *must* read this:
 http://www.au.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/

and the new maintainers guide. basically worked examples, very
similar to my "talk":
 http://www.au.debian.org/doc/maint-guide/

if you're actually becoming a maintainer, then the developers'
reference is also good for "what is the correct procedure for.."
 http://www.au.debian.org/doc/developers-reference/


these documents are also available as .deb packages, if you want them
installed locally.

the "hello" and "hello-debhelper" packages are also good examples
(thats their point).
