Debian (http://www.debian.org) is a well-known Linux distribution. It comes with his own
software package management system based around a tool called
dpkg and a software package format called a Debian package.
The use of Debian packages is not limited to Debian. Many other Linux distribution (e.g. Ubuntu) are based on Debian and also use the same package management system.
For now we only have a single tutorial explaining how to create simple Debian packages.
